Experimental investigations on metamorphic processes can be viewed as an alternative forward modelling approach of the pressure–temperature–composition (P–T–X) evolution of a rock. To obtain results as close as possible to natural observations one can use natural rocks as starting materials. The disadvantage of this method is the complex chemical compositions of the rocks and therefore these whole-rock experiments need to be evaluated not only (1) in terms of their ability to reproduce the natural observations but also (2) in their ability to reproduce theoretical calculations. In this contribution high-T low-P experiments (550–780°C and 0.15–0.6 GPa)...
