Minerals that form from the magma in predictable patterns in a process known as Bowen's reaction series. Bowen's reaction series is the general model for the formation and the sequence of crystallization of the magma, as the cooling process occurs. Bowen's reaction series was the idea of Norman L. Bowen. The series explains that the minerals will crystallize differently at certain temperatures, as it cools. It also indicates why certain types of minerals are found together and why others are almost never connected with each other.
