Far-from-equilibrium dissolution rates of crystalline basalt were measured in a mixed-flow reactor at pH 4 and 10, and at temperatures from 25 to 75°C. The material used was obtained from a dyke on Stapafell Mountain on Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland because of its similarity with previous experiments on dissolution rates on basaltic glass by Oelkers and Gislason (2001) and Gislason and Oelkers (2003). Comparison of dissolution rates of basaltic glass and of crystalline basalt of similar chemical composition (from Gislason and Oelkers, 2003) indicates lower rates for crystalline material.
