Abstract- Dolomite or calcite, quartz and kaolinite in various proportions were reacted at 250-300~ temperatures and pressures up to 90 bars in a hydrous environment. Reactions which approached completion produced talc, calcite, montmorillonite, anorthite (both metastable hexagonal and stable triclinic polymorphs) and the rare Ca-zeolite, garronite. These reactions are applicable to diagenesis, low-grade metamorphism and hydrothermal alteration.
