Paragonite paragenesis from the garnet granulites of the Jijal complex, Kohistan, N. Pakistan

  • M. Q. Jan (a1), R. N. Wilson (a2) and B. F. Windley (a2)


Chemistry of six white micas from the high-pressure garnet granulites of Jijal is presented, together with trace elements, refractive indices, and 2V α for one. The micas are rich in the paragonite component (over 93%), with one analysis having the highest 100 Na/(Na + K) ratio (98.5) so far reported. The paragonite is not a stable mineral of the granulites but was overprinted on the granulites at about 505–540°C and 8–9 kbar (suggesting a depth of 30 km).
