We thank Ilona Fin and Oliver Wienand for the careful preparation of the polished crystal sections, Christian Weikusat for his instructions in using the Raman spectrometer and evaluating the spectra as well as for performing the irradiation experiments at GSI, and Hans-Peter Meyer for his help with carrying out the microprobe analyses. Financial support within the BMBF Verbundprojekt ( project grant 05KK7VH) is acknowledged. Ulrich A. Glasmacher and Ronald Miletich would like to thank also Rodolfo Corona-Esquivel, Mexico City, for his support during the field trip at Durango. Raman spectra were fitted using the freeware FITYK 0.8.6 (http://www.unipress.waw.pl/fityk/).
