Short summary
The crystallographic texture of experimentally sheared samples of dynamically recrystallized quartzite have been reanalyzed using EBSD. Detailed grain size analysis reveals that the recrystallized grain size depends not only on stress, as assumed in the recrystallized quartz piezometer of Stipp and Tullis (2003), but also on texture, grain-scale deformation intensity, and the kinematic framework of axial versus general shear experiments.
