[SMP29-P05] Boron isotope variations of antigorite serpentinites associated with high-pressure metamorphic rocks: A case study in the Itoigawa–Omi area of the Hida-Gaien Belt, Japan
Keywords:Serpentinite, boron isotope, subduction zone
The investigated serpentinites can be grouped into two types based on the B isotopes. Antigorite serpentinite with blueschist- and eclogite-facies metamorphic rocks in the Yunotani Valley is characterized by moderate boron (12.5–48.4 µg·g−1) and lower δ11B (+6.6 to +12.3‰ [mostly smaller than +8‰]; n= 10); Brucite-bearing antigorite serpentinite with barroisite-bearing mafic schist in the Kotaki-gawa River is characterized by very high boron (37.5 – 302 µg·g−1) and lower δ11B (+5.8 to +10.7‰ [mostly smaller than +8‰]; n= 10). In contrast, antigorite serpentinite with garnet amphibolite in the Omi-gawa River is characterized by a wide range of boron (9.1–145 µg·g−1) and relatively high δ11B (+11.5 to + 14.8 ‰; n= 10).
Our preliminary reconnaissance shows significantly lower δ11B (smaller than +8‰) in antigorite serpentinites of the 'Eclogite Unit' proposed by Tsujimori (2002). This trend is consistent with our earlier study in the Franciscan Complex. The antigorite serpentinites in the 'Eclogite Unit' might have been affected by a deep forearc slab fluids.
