Effects of Iron, Nickel, and Nutrient Supply on Pyrite Crystal Formation in Marsh Sediments

Abstract Pyrite (FeS 2) forms commonly in salt marsh sediments and acts as a crucial control on the amount of sulfur in its various forms (SO 4 2-, H2 S, etc.) that remains in the environment. A better understanding of the mechanisms behind pyrite formation is

Sedimentary pyrite formation: An update | Semantic Scholar

Sedimentary pyrite formation during early diagenesis is a major process for controlling the oxygen level of the atmosphere and the sulfate concentration in seawater over geologic time. The amount of pyrite that may form in a sediment is limited by the rates of supply of decomposable organic matter, dissolved sulfate, and reactive detrital iron minerals. Organic matter appears to be the major ...

Pyrite formation in an anoxic estuarine basin | American …

 · Based on pyrite textures, S-isotopic compositions of water-column and sediment sulfides, and settling rate calculations, about 70% of the pyrite burial flux to the Pettaquamscutt sediments is accounted for by framboids forming at the oxic-anoxic interface and

Pyrite Framboid Formation; Laboratory Synthesis and …

Pyrite synthesis was examined in the laboratory, and the chemical, crystallographic and textural results were compared with naturally occurring pyrite in marine sediment. The path of pyrite formation begins with reaction of hydrogen sulfide and dissolved iron. The first product is either amorphous iron sulfide or mackinawite with composition FeS ...

How is pyrite used in everyday life?

 · The formation of pyrite crystals depends mainly on the iron content of the sediment. The process of pyrite formation in sediments results from the action of bacteria, which reduce sulphate ions (dissolved in the pore water) to sulphide. If there is iron present, iron ...

Sulfide minerals in sediments | SpringerLink

 · The initial reaction products are iron monosulfide minerals that may subsequently transform to pyrite by reaction with polysulfides or other reactive oxidants (e.g., Morse et al., 1987). Pyrite formation in sediments is thought to be limited either by the microbial

Pyrite formation from FeS and H2S is mediated through …

 · With an annual formation of at least 5 million tons, pyrite (FeS 2) is the thermodynamically stable end product of iron compounds reacting with sulfide in reduced sediments, with the latter being produced mainly by microbial sulfate reduction. Consequently, pyrite is the most abundant iron−sulfur mineral on Earth''s surface (1).

Iron monosulfide accumulation and pyrite formation in …

 · If pyrite formation in the sediments is indeed inhibited, it is likely associated with the availability of dissolved FeS rather than H 2 S. At pH > 7, FeS m hydrolysis is negligible and dissolved FeS is controlled by the intrinsic solubility of solid-phase FeS FeS (aq) /FeS (s) = 10 −6 ( Rickard, 2006 ).

Abiotic pyrite formation produces a large Fe isotope …

We demonstrate that Fe isotope fractionation accompanies abiotic pyrite formation in the absence of Fe(II) redox change. Combined fractionation factors between Fe(II)(aq), mackinawite, and pyrite permit the generation of pyrite with Fe isotope signatures that nearly encapsulate the full range of sedimentary δ(56)Fe(pyrite) recorded in Archean to modern sediments.

Pyrite

Pyrite''s metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold, hence the well-known nickname of fool''s gold.The color has also led to the nicknames brass, brazzle, and Brazil, primarily used to refer to pyrite found in coal. The name pyrite is derived from the Greek πυρίτης λίθος (pyritēs lithos), "stone or mineral which strikes fire", in turn from ...

whether it be in the sediments (Cutter and Velinsky, 1988) or in the water column (Muramoto et al., 1991 ). Apparently greigite formation and framboid formation are linked to the oxic-anoxic transition. The discovery of pyrite framboids suspended
