The rationale for this seems to have been only that in the greenschist paragenesis of another "block" (albite + actinote + epidote + white mica [+ o -] quartz [+ o -] titanite + rutile) "the presence of rutile suggests that the block may have had an epidote-amphibolite or eclogite facies mineral assemblage which was recrystallized to the greenschist assemblage".
