The spatial distribution of chemical impurities in gemmy quartz reveals the thermal evolution of their host hydrothermal fluids and documents syn- and post-crystallization chemical diffusion. The purpose of this study was to present micro-FTIR spectroscopic analyses of three hydrous species (LiOH, AlOH, and molecular water) from a single crystal collected at the classic alpine locality of Windgallenhutte, Switzerland.
