The Mahanid Formation is a quartzo-feldspathic meta-sedimentary unit exposed in the southeastern part of the Arabian shield. Detritus was derived from a continental landmass located to the southeast.

The Mahanid Formation is correlated with other formations in the eastern shield area, but differs from meta-sedimentary units in the western part of the Arabian shield.
