Volcanic crystals provide detailed records of the inner workings of volcanoes and improve our understanding of the depths, processes and timescales of magma transport, storage and eruption. The growth stratigraphy of minerals sampled by erupted magmas provides a unique archive of processes leading to eruption, including mixing, replenishment, differentiation and mobilisation of mantle-to-crustal reservoirs. The identification of eruption triggers from the mineral record has implications for the understanding of trans-crustal magma feeder systems, the monitoring of active volcanoes and their associated hazards. This talk will interrogate magmatic systems from a crystal perspective, highlighting recent technical advances and future directions.
