Garnet-pyroxene gneisses at Bear Mountain, New York

Garnet-pyroxene gneisses at Bear Mountain, New York
American Mineralogist (1963) 48: 811-820


Fe-rich garnet-pyroxene gneisses occur as layers in hornblende granulite subfacies metasediments at Bear Mountain, New York. Although these gneisses bear a superficial resemblance to both eclogites and skarns, their chemical compositions suggest that they are metamorphosed ferruginous sediments of the chert-carbonate type. Such rocks have not been noted before in the Highlands metamorphic belt.
