Reconnaissance studies of the Setters Formation, the basal unit of the Glenarm Series, confirm early reports that kyanite, Staurolite, and abundant garnets occur in the schists at the top of the formation, and refute recent statements to the contrary. Kyanite, Staurolite, and garnet are most abundant in the Setters schist north of Texas, Maryland. South of that point, the schist contains little or no kyanite or Staurolite, and only rare garnet, possibly reflecting a change in sedimentary facies.
