Abstract

Calciphyres and granulites near Nanjangud, Mysore, India, had been reported to contain rare carbonatesilicate and feldspathoid minerals, an unusual occurrence for Archean metamorphic terrain. Reexamination of the specimens, and of the locality, indicates the absence of the reported gabbro-limestone contacts and the high-temperature minerals. The minerals found are plagioclase, microcline, scapolite, epidote-clinozoisite, garnet, amphiboles, clinopyroxenes, micas, chlorite, calcite, sphene, quartz, and ores.
