Dear Colleagues, Thank you for this interesting presentation. I note the Fe isotope differences between olivine and glass are very small and error bars often overlap. Have you conducted statistic tests? Also, a recent study by Prissel et al. (2018) GCA 238: 580-598 found no equilibrium Fe isotope fractionation between olivine and melts of various compositions on the basis of theoretical and experimental approaches. So this would mean the small isotopic fractionation you observe, if statistically significant, were essentially due to kinetic effects?
