Formation of epidote in Tanganyika

Formation of epidote in Tanganyika
Bulletin of the Geological Society of America (1954) 65 (11): 1075-1092

Abstract

Physicochemical conditions favorable to the formation of epidote in the pre-Karroo crystalline complex of Tanganyika obtained principally during dislocation, metasomatism, or metamorphism of lime-bearing rocks, and during lime metasomatism of granitic or quartzitic rocks. Epidote in acid magmatic rocks is considered the product of contamination associated with the presence of lime-rich xenoliths. The mode of formation and stability relations of the various minerals of the epidote group are outlined.
