Marbles and interlayered coesite-bearing eclogites near the village ofSanqingge in the Sulu ultrahighpressure (UHP) terrane ofeastern China were studied to estimate their P-T evolution. Using garnet, omphacite and phengite as geothermobarometers, the coesite eclogites are calculated to have experienced P-T conditions of3.4 –3.7 GPa and ~600ºC (stage I), followed by decompression and a slight temperature decrease to 2.7–3.2 GPa and 520–560ºC respectively (stage II) and later to 2.6–2.8 GPa and ~500ºC (stage III). No water influx affected the eclogites until reaching amphibolite facies conditions of 0.5–1.3 Gpa and 595–685ºC (stage IV). As we interpret the occasional appearance ofcalcite with magnesite relics in the core as a reaction ofUHP dolomite and magnesite with Ca-rich fluids at stage IV to form CaCO3, the calculated pressure for stage I could be the maximum pressure experienced by these rocks. Thus, the crustal material ofthe Sanqingge quarry, originally sedimentary carbonates (now marbles) and interstratified basic tuffs (now eclogites), has been buried to a depth of ≥ 120 km at ~600ºC. This burial occurred in a subduction setting along a very low geotherm of 5–6ºC/km. The exhumation possibly occurred in the environment ofa subduction channel.
