Carbonate Stains and D47

16 Apr 2015

Hi all,

Has anyone experimented with typical carbonate stains and any possible effects on D47?  I have a group of samples that have been stained with alizarin red s and potassium ferricyanide, was wondering if anyone has looked into this.  I'm not expecting it will be a problem, but just wanted to be sure!

Only did with potassium

Only did with potassium ferricyanide, the only thing I can do is to help you get the topic renewed with the hope that it can be answered soon.

Hi Will, Like Mandy, no

Hi Will, 
Like Mandy, no personal experience with this: we typically stain the thin section but analyse the thin section stub. But you could easily stain some carrara marble powder, analyse it, and see if there is a difference. Plus you can report this in your next paper for the rest of us! :)
