Abstract

Low-grade, high-P metapelites and metapsammites occur with marbles containing layers of blueschists in this unit in the S part of the central West Carpathians. Apart from phengite and quartz, they contain one or more of the minerals chloritoid, paragonite, glaucophane, albite, chlorite and in places also jadeitic pyroxene (Jd (sub 33-45) ) and garnet. Textural and some phase relations between chloritoid, chlorite and glaucophane suggest that chloritoid formed first, followed by glaucophane during metamorphism. Estimated P-T conditions of blueschist metamorphism are 400-460 degrees C at 10.5-12 kbar for the glaucophane and/or pyroxene-bearing rocks and 360-400 degrees C, 8-10 kbar for chloritoid-bearing rocks.
