The boron-bearing minerals grandidierite, werdingite, serendibite and sinhalite are common in high-grade rocks of the Tranomaro belt in southeastern Madagascar. The mutual occurrence of these phases allows a new understanding of the role of boron-rich fluids in the crustal evolution of Gondwana, and we provide critical borosilicate data to constrain that development. We distinguish two types of grandidierite depending on their B2O3 and Al2O3 contents and on their relations with associated borosilicate phases. (1) At Vohibola the presence of sinhalite and serendibite associated with phlogopite lenses in metasedimentary diopsidites indicates an evaporitic origin...
