Abstract

Green chromian andradite occurs associated with chrysotile in a chromitite layer within the Jijal Complex (northern Pakistan). The garnet contains, on average, 10.1 wt. % Cr (sub 2) O (sub 3) (range 9.2-11.6%) and has a formula Ca (sub 3.04) (Cr (sub 0.67) Fe (sub 3+) (sub 1.29) Al (sub 0.02) )Si (sub 2.98) O (sub 12) . The garnet formed during retrograde greenschist-facies metamorphism of the Jijal Complex.--Modified journal abstract.
