Dr. A. W. Groves and Mr. A. E. Mourant: Inclusions in the apatites of some igneous rocks. Apatite crystals with dark cores of inclusions have been observed among the heavy minerals of some English sedimentary rocks, but there are few records of such apatites in igneous rocks. The authors record several such occurrences in granites and in volcanic rocks from Normandy, Jersey, and Brittany. Five different types are distinguished in the granite of northern Brittany alone. In one type with a definitely pleochroic core the inclusions appear to consist of biotite or chlorite, but in other types it has not been possible to determine their nature.
