As the oceanic crust subducts, it experiences a very high pressure but relatively low temperature style of regional metamorphism, and the basalt and gabbro are transformed to blueschist
(or glaucophane schist) and then to eclogite (Figure 5).
Inside the tomb is a stone pillar the size of a fully grown person, which resembles a petrified tree trunk, but is, in fact, blueschist
- a stone formed under immense pressure.
Eight specimens, including granite, rhyolite, blueschist
, septarian concretions, and a triolibite, were loaned to WMI from the geology collections at the University of Southern Indiana.
Beryl-bearing sediments of the study area that are derived from metamorphic units consist of garnet-glaucophane schist, lawsonite-glaucophane schist, epidote-chlorite schist, epidotite, and chlorite-lawsonite schist (Kulaksiz, 1981) reflecting blueschist
facies (Bucher and Frey, 1994; Davis and Whitney, 2006).

The Study area is a part of the Kot-Pranghar Melange Zone, which is comprised of rocks of ophiolitic sequence and is located at the northern tip of the Indian plate in the vicinity of Indus Suture Zone (ISZ) or Main Mantle Thrust (MMT) along which a thick imbricated melange zone of greenschist, blueschist
, and serpentinite intervenes between the Kohistan Arc and the Indian Plate.
After discussion of the geology of the Eastern Mediterranean, the guide presents a two-day field guide to outcrops in Samos Island, Greece, then a six-day guide that explores the Antolide Belt in western Turkey where the Menderes nappes form the tectonic footwall below the Cycladic Blueschist
Unit, sections across the Bozdag and Aydin Mountains, and the southern margin of the Menderes Massif in the Milas-Selimiye area.
Most samples are metabasalts that belong to the chlorite zone of the greenschist facies, but other rock types include metagrey wackes and a metabasalt of the prehnite/ pumpellyite facies, and a glaucophanic metachert and glaucophanic metabasalt of the blueschist
Stuart pole was just one of six impossible things before breakfast, along with news of exotic, Asian faunas near Cache Creek in the BC interior; Franciscan-type blueschist
belts embedded deep in the central Cordillera near Fort St.
