Mineralogy and petrographic characteristic of carbonate samples from Kovdor (Kola Peninsula, North Russia)

Miłosz A. Huber, Lesia Lata


Revealing in the Kola Peninsula area in Kovdor carbonatites and other alkaline rocks with ultrabazites are samples of the paleozoic hot spot products. They represent a zone of the late devonian intusives, which are common in the Baltic Shield including a Kola Peninsula, Finland, Karelian and NE Poland regions. In these studies were make a microanalyses of rock-forming and accessory minerals using the polarized and SEM-EDS microscopy methods. In these rocks the Nb mineralization was detected.
