Diagrams Of A Brazilian Wax Why Do Some Ternary Diagrams Have More Than Three Endmembers?

Why do some ternary diagrams have more than three endmembers? - diagrams of a brazilian wax

I do not understand the mineralogy of the ternary diagrams. How is it that some ternary diagrams have more than three endmembers? Some of them have 8 or more ... And besides, why some have more of a mixture of vulnerability? Please explain.

The three endmembers ternary diagrams, graphs, or quaternary (which requires three dimensions given). Sometimes, a culmination of a ternary diagram can be modified to show something else, but they are still ternary diagrams.
A miscibility gap) is a region in a ternary diagram in the form of minerals (at a certain temperature and / or pressure. Miscibility gaps are for the stability of the minerals due to physical limitations, such as the ionic radius are related. When a mixture of land in a mixture of vulnerability and two mineral forms (as a percentage of both sides of the trench). You see it in the colors of labradorite found alternating sequence of minerals on both sides of the miscibility gap in the plagioclase series. At lower temperatures there (I think) three miscibility gaps in the plagioclase, because of the different sizes of calcium ions and sodium.

I can not answer your question, but the site below a very good opinion of binary and ternary diagrams, and may have the information you need.
