EOAS Geology Professor Mainak Mookherjee, explores how feldspar, one of the most important minerals in the Earth's crust, changes under pressure. Typically, materials become stiffer when pressure is applied, but Dr. Mookherjee found that these pale-colored crystals actually become softer under extreme pressures. A Tallahassee high school student, Dhenu Patel, interned with Mookherjee's lab and contributed to the paper, which is published in Scientific Reports (link below).
