Abstract

In this work we report a microthermometric and proton-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) mapping investigation on multiphase fluid inclusions hosted within nepheline and clinopyroxene of endoskarn xenoliths present in the deposits of the AD 472 eruption of Vesuvius. PIXE mapping on magmatic fluid inclusions repesents a useful tool for the characterization of the composition of magma derived fluids, exsolved from active magma chambers. In fluid inclusions we observed the occurrence of widespread solid phases formed by Fe, Pb, Zn, As Cu Mn, suggesting the good metal transport capability of Vesuvius magmatic fluids, which interacted with carbonate country rocks leading to the formation of endoskarn.
