    A rare-earth element (REE) or rare-earth metal (REM), as defined by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, is one of a set of seventeen chemical elements in the periodic table, specifically the fifteen lanthanides, as well as scandium and yttrium. Scandium and yttrium are considered rare-earth elements because they tend to occur in the same ore deposits as the lanthanides and. Rare earth elements occur in many minerals but typically in concentrations too low to be refined in an economical manner; the concentration of REEs in the Earth's crust is estimated to be between to parts per million, which is higher than the concentration of .

    For nearly 50 years, carbonatites have been the primary source of niobium and rare earth elements (REEs), in particular the light REEs, including La, Ce, Pr, and Nd. Carbonatites are a relatively rare type of igneous rock composed of greater than 50 vol % primary carbonate minerals, primarily calcite and/or dolomite, and contain the highest concentrations of REEs of any igneous rocks. Rare Earth Elements in some representative arc lavas Low-K (tholeiitic), Medium-K (calc-alkaline), and High-K basaltic andesites and andesites. A typical N-MORB pattern is included for reference Notes: 1. Within each series, slope of pattern is relative constant. Changes in REE concentrations within each series is primarily.

Alkaline igneous complexes host deposits of rare earth elements (REE), which represent one of the most economically important resources of heavy REE and Yttrium (Y). The hosts are differentiated rocks ranging from nepheline syenites and trachytes to peralkaline granites. These complexes usually occur in continental within-plate tectonic settings associated with rifts, faults, or hotspot magmatism.

Contact-metamorphic marbles were replaced by wollastonite, garnet, and clinopyroxene during infiltration metasomatism involving large volumes of water of chiefly meteoric origin.

Geochemical data for a comprehensive suite of over samples of massif anorthosite and associated rocks from the Adirondack Mountains, New York, exhibit a ubiquitous mixed tholeiitic and.

Most studies of the behavior of rare earth elements (REE) in hydrothermal environments have dealt with active systems. BauKlinkhammer et alMills and Elderfieldand James and Elderfield () have found that mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal fluids show relative LREE and Eu enrichment when normalized to seawater or MORB, which Cited by: The Rare-Earth Elements— Vital to Modern Technologies and Lifestyles.

Until recently, the rare-earth elements (REEs) were familiar to a relatively small number of people, such as chemists, geologists, specialized materials. scientists, and engineers.

In the 21st century, the REEs have gained visibilityCited by: Rare earth element abundance analysis. Aliquots (~ mg) of finely powdered sample were fused with ~1 g LiBO 2 in graphite crucibles at 1,°C for 30 min to yield a homogenous, molten fusion.

Mining Radioactive and Rare Earth Element Analysis SGS provides uranium, thorium and rare earth element (REE) analysis.

There are a limited number of methods that can be used for these trace and ultra-trace elements and SGS has the stringent handling protocols in place to analyze them safely at specific designated sites.

Many scientists spent their whole lives attempting to obtain a 99 percent pure rare earth, usually by fractional crystallization, which makes use of the slight differences of the solubility of a rare-earth salt in an aqueous solution compared with that of a neighbouring lanthanide element.

‘KREEP’ materials are enriched in such elements as potassium (K), rare earth elements (REE), and phosphorus (P) (e.g., Taylor et al. The recent Kaguya data (Kobayashi et al. ; Ohtake et al. ) revealed that the central farside highland has a more primitive aspect owing to the lower Th content and higher Mg#.

Yttrium is one of the four chemical elements (the others are erbium, terbium, and ytterbium) named after Ytterby, a village in Sweden that is rich in unusual minerals and rare earths.

Yttrium is a metal with a silvery luster and properties closely resembling those of rare earth metals. It is the first member of the second series of transition. Much of his rare earth work was carried out with the help of undergraduates whom he patiently developed into accomplished researchers.

He was known by all as "King" James, a tribute to his English heritage. The New York Section of ACS awarded James the Nichols Medal in for his research in the chemistry of the rare earth elements. The distribution of rare earth elements (REEs) in minerals and mineral assemblages is of considerable geochemical significance.

However, because of their low levels in most minerals, analysis for. Click on the book chapter title to read more.

Niton analyzers are indispensable tools for the analysis of the light series of REEs (LREEs), including lanthanum (La), cerium (Ce), praseodymium (Pr), and neodymium (Nd). Other elements associated with REE-bearing minerals such as thorium (Th) and Yttriym (Y) can also be analyzed. Museum Hours.

The principal economic sources of rare earths are the minerals bastnasite, monazite, and loparite and the lateritic ion-adsorption clays. The rare earths are a relatively abundant group of 17 elements composed of scandium, yttrium, and the lanthanides.

The elements range in crustal abundance from cerium, the 25th most abundant element of the 78 common elements in the Earth's.
