# Crystallization path of diopside-wollastonite-silica systems

Can someone please explain to me (or give a source) how the crystallization diagram of the diopside-wollastonite-silica system looks. I am a new learner of geology and trying to learn ternary systems.

The diopside–wollastonite–silica system ($\ce{CaMgSi2O6-CaSiO3-SiO2}$) was never studied for crystallisation paths in igneous systems. This is not a system encountered in terrestrial magmas, so no one bothered.
However, it was studied as part of a more general lime–magnesia–silica ($\ce{CaO-MgO-SiO2}$) system by material scientists and they came up with this:
