Quartz is one of the most common minerals in the Earth's crust; its microstructure is sensitive to diverse deformation mechanisms. Thus, it may provide valuable information regarding the structural evolution of many different rock types. Using Raman microspectroscopy, single quartz grains and monomineralic domains characterized by different deformation conditions can be identified and separated. In this study, three microstructurally extreme quartz grain types were discriminated: grains with undulose extinction (T0), grains with subgrains (T1), and grains with recrystallized grains (T2).
