The Miscibility of the Pyralspite and Grandite Molecules in Garnets

Summary: Though the transitional members between the pyralspite and grandite series occur only very sporadically, there exists under favourable conditions a perfect miscibility between grossular on the one hand, and spessartine or almandine or pyrope on the other. The conditions favouring this miscibility are discussed.
