The Hillabee Greenstone is a mafic metavolcanic sequence at the stratigraphic top of the Talladega Group in the Northern Alabama Piedmont. The Hollins Line fault forms the upper contact of the Hillabee, and an undetermined amount of the Greenstone has been removed by faulting. The igneous protolith consisted of tholeiitic rocks (ash and lava) with minor calc-alkaline dacites. Volcanism was arc-related, based on geochemical evidence and the associated lithologies. Greenschist facies metamorphism and alteration have resulted in changes in the chemistry and mineralogy of the rocks. However, a variety of remnant igneous textures can be observed, and through statistical means,...
