Chlorite-mica stacks in low-strain rocks from central Wales
Geological Magazine (1982) 119 (3): 243-256


Weakly deformed, low-grade, Lower Palaeozoic metasediments contain abundant stack-like intergrowths of chlorite and white mica. It is suggested that the stacks formed during diagenesis and low-grade metamorphism before the onset of deformation, through mimetic growth on a primary bedding fabric composed of clay minerals.
