"The object of this paper is to arrive at a better explanation of the segregation of magmatic solutions on cooling. In which magmas will be discussed from a chemical and metallurgical lien of reasoning, in showing why such minerals as apatite, magnetite, etc., having a comparatively low melting point, crystallize cut before feldspar and quartz, which have a comparatively high fusion point" – p.
