Three types of mafic granulites, namely two pyroxene-plagioclase granutite (MG), two pyroxeneplagioclase-garnet granulite (GMG) and spinel-olivine-plagioclase-two pyroxene granulite (SMG) are exposed at Sunkarimetta, Eastern Ghats belt, India. The marie granulites exhibit a foliation concordant with that in associated granulite facies quartzofeldspathic gneisses. Textural characteristics and mineral chemical data suggest the following mineral reactions: olivine + plagioclase = spinel + orthopyroxene + clinopyroxene (SMG), orthopyroxene + plagioclase = garnet + quartz (GMG), clinopyroxene + plagioclase = garnet + quartz (GMG) and plagioclase + hemoilmenite + quartz = garnet + ilmenite + 02 (GMG). Geothermobarometry indicates maximum P-T conditions of metamorphism at c. 8.5 kbar, 950°C The marie granulites later suffered nearly isobaric cooling to c. 7.5 kbar, 750°C Bulk compositional characteristics suggest that SMG is of cumulate origin. The protoliths of the mafic granulites, emplaced at c. 32 km depth, are probably responsible for thermal perturbation causing granulite facies metamorphism of the enclosing rocks.
