  1. garnet Hornblende Plag garnet garnet Metabasites / Metacarbonates Francis, 2014

  2. Metabasites: Mafic volcanics such as basalts and andesites have more complicated and variable compositions than shales, containing significant quantities of Ca and Na, in addition to Si, Al, Mg Fe, K, and H2O. At least 8 components are necessary to describe such systems, and it is no longer possible to construct a simple projection scheme that is thermodynamically rigorous. The metamorphic mineral assemblages of mafic volcanic rocks are commonly portrayed in an ACF projection, but it should be remembered that, unlike the metapelite AFM diagram, 3 phase regions in the ACF diagram are not strictly invariant and crossing tie lines are not uncommon.

  3. Zeolite Facies The beginning of metamorphism in volcanic rocks and volcanogenic sediments is marked by the development of zeolites in vesicles and fractures under conditions of shallow burial. In consequence, volcanic rocks change from being vesicular to amygdular. Apart from the filling of vesicules and void spaces with these secondary minerals, rocks in the zeolite facies look essentially unmetamorphosed, although they often appear somewhat weathered in hand specimen: dirty, brownish, and oxidized because the processes of weathering have continued into the zeolite facies. Massive samples may still be quite pristine, however, retaining their original igneous mineralogy, especially if they have been isolated from extensive weathering and are relatively dry.

  5. Zeolite assemblages are stable only at relatively low PCO2. Even at relatively modest levels of CO2, zeolite mineral assemblages are commonly replaced by carbonate and clay minerals.

  6. Prehnite - Pumpellyite sub-Facies of the Greenschist Facies The development of prehnite and pumpellyite in the both the groundmass and void spaces marks the beginning of the prehnite - pumpellyite sub-facies in metavolcanic and metavolcanogenic sedimentary rocks. Volcanic rocks in this metamorphic facies begin to take on a greenish colour, although they typically are relatively unstrained and unrecrystallized, and commonly appear little metamorphosed in hand specimen, except for the development of a greenish colour. The presence of prehnite and pumpellyite are best recognized in thin section.

  17. calcite calcite grossularite diopside Meta-carbonates / Skarns

  18. Skarns are rocks rich in calc-silicate minerals that are produced by the contact metamorphism of limestones and dolomites. The silica required for the prograde metamorphic reactions may come from detrital quartz and/or silica sponge spicules, etc. in the original carbonate sediment, but may also be introduced metasomatically by fluids emanating from the igneous intrusion responsible for the contact metamorphism. Metacarbonates Skarns are typically named on the basis of their most characteristic mineral assemblage, eg.: olivine-diopside skarn
