|Abstract:||Large quantities of monazite from different pegmatite bodies of the Itambe pegmatite district were investigated to assess their suitability as U–Pb and Sm–Nd isotope reference materials for LA-ICP-MS and to track the origin of a piece of theMoacyrmonazite (termed here Itambé), awidely used reference material for LA-ICP-MS U–Pb geochronology. Monazite fromthe largest pegmatite bodies in the district (the Bananeira, Coqueiro and Paraíso pegmatites) are Ce-monazite, with negligible amounts of the huttonite and brabantite components. They are homogeneous in major and trace elements, which makes them potential candidates as compositional reference materials. U–Pb LA-ICP-MS and ID-TIMS analyses yielded identical ages within error. Although the ID-TIMS ages (507.7 ± 1.3 (207Pb⁎/235U) and 513.6 ± 1.2 Ma (206Pb⁎/238U)) were reversely discordant, spot ages determined by LA-ICP-MS geochronology were concordant at ca 508 Ma. The Bananeiro monazite was assessed as a LA-ICPMS U–Pb primary reference material against other known reference materials (treated as unknowns). This approach successfully reproduced the previously published ages of the reference materials.MREE/HREE fractionation (ie, (La/Gd)N and (Gd/Lu)N values), Eu/Eu⁎ and the chondrite-normalized REE patterns suggest that the “Itambé” monazite aliquot is very similar to that fromthe Coqueiro pegmatite. This similarity is likewise apparent in their Sm–Nd isotope compositions. Moreover, the εNdi values of the “Itambé” monazite fragment (εNdi=−4.2) and those fromall the major pegmatites in the district, are distinct fromother reference materials (eg, Managountry; εNdi = −22.3) as well as gem-quality monazite from c. 490–520 Ma pegmatites from the Araçuaí Orogen, further to the south. The εNdi can provide a further distinction for tracing Brazillian gemquality monazite reference materials.|
