This paper proposes a revision of the gravitational redistribution model suggested by Leonid Perchuk for the formation, evolution, and exhumation of Precambrian high-grade terranes (HGTs) located between granite-greenstone cratons. Such HGTs are separated from greenstone belts by crustal-scale shear zones up to 10 km wide and several hundred kilometers long. Pelite samples far (>~50 km) from the bounding shear zones show coronitic and symplectitic textures that reflect a decompression-cooling (DC) pressure-temperature (P-T) path. On the other hand, samples from within ~50 km of the bounding shear zones are characterized by textures that reflect an isobaric or near-isobaric cooling (IC) path....
