Igneous layering is developed in the Proterozoic rapakivi granite suite of South Greenland in an area on the south-easternmost coast of the island of Angnikitsoq. The layering at this locality is unusual in that it is defined by interstitial phases. We suggest that large-scale hydrothermal alteration has converted a fine-grained pyroxene cumulate, in which original cumulate pyroxenes occurred in the interstices between larger feldspars, to interstitial biotite and green amphibole.
