The Léon domain adjacent to the Cadomian realm in the North Armorican domain appears to be a displaced crustal block, as its metamorphism and rock types bear a resemblance to the South Armorican domain of the internal Variscan belt. The amphibolite-facies Conquet-Penze Micaschist unit overlies the high-grade Lesneven Gneiss unit in the central part of the Léon. Timing and conditions of the metamorphic evolution have been evaluated. At the base of the Lesneven Gneiss unit, a high-pressure eclogite-facies stage (700 °C at >13 kbar) was followed by a high-temperature event (800 °C at 8 kbar), which is characterized by the...
