      Geologic history, stratigraphy, and tectonics Paleozoic ( million years ago) The oldest rocks in Italy may include oceanic crust subducted during the Caledonian orogeny and million year old Ordovician granites. Only detrital zircons in the Alps dates to the Precambrian.. These granites are located offshore of Venice, found in the Agip Assunta well and deformed, . The eclogites (from Gr. a selection) are mostly coarse-grained and massive aggregates of green monoclinic pyrox ene and red garnet, but some varieties possess green hornblende wholly or partly replacing the pyroxene, thus giving rise to the two important groups—the pyroxene and the hornblende eclogites.

        Current knowledge on the solidus temperature for carbonated eclogites suggests that carbonatitic liquids should not form from a subducted oceanic lithosphere at sub-arc depth. However, the oceanic crust includes a range of gabbroic rocks, altered on rifts and transforms, with large amounts of anorthite-rich plagioclase forming epidote on metamorphism. metavolcanic rocks include eclogite, omphacitite, epidosite, and blueschist (e.g., Klemd et al. ). Garnet, omphacite, zoisite, epidote minerals,phen-gite, paragonite, sodic amphibole, quartz, titanite, and rutile are present in all mafic rocks in variable modal proportions. Eclogites and omphacitites oc-cur as pods (15–25 cm in diameter.

      ECLOGITE. Eclogite is an attractive, uncommon, crystalline-textured, very high-grade metamorphic rock. It is dominated by green & red minerals. The red is pyrope or almandine garnet. The green is omphacite pyroxene. Eclogite appears to be moderately common in portions of the upper mantle, but it occurs in very few places at the Earth's surface. bodies and the eclogites are then structurally incongruent with the gneiss. 4. Tight folds in the banded eclogites indicate that they have experienced a period of very plastic deformation although they were obviously com­ petent rocks relative to .

Eclogite, any member of a small group of igneous and metamorphic rocks whose composition is similar to that of tes consist primarily of green pyroxene (omphacite) and red garnet (pyrope), with small amounts of various other stable minerals—e.g., are formed when volcanic or metamorphic rocks rich in such mafic minerals are subjected to extremely high.

Three groups of eclogites are referred to as group A (former basaltic intrusions within metamorphic rocks of the amphibolite facies), group B (inclusions or xenoliths from great depths), and group C eclogites (former subducting oceanic lithosphere).

Group A eclogites frequently contain quartz, kyanite, and zoisite. Eclogites are predicted to be thermodynamically stable also in the lower crust beneath cratonic regions. However, xenolith suite studies indicate that kinetic and/or compositional factors limit their distribution in the lower continental crust relative to.

(a) Eclogites from the mantle (i.e. group I of Smulikowski and group A of Coleman et al.). These eclogites are associated with ultrabasic rocks, either in Italian eclogites and related rocks book bodies or as xenoliths in kimberlite pipes.

Eclogites containing lawsonite (a hydrous calcium-aluminium silicate) are rarely exposed at Earth’s surface, although they are predicted from experiments and thermal models to form during normal subduction of oceanic crust at depths between ~ kilometers.

Eclogites are beautiful rocks that form deep within subduction vast majority of subducted oceanic crust becomes more dense than the surrounding mantle rocks and travels to the strange world of the deep for.

Eclogites are rocks of gabbroic-basaltic composition and consist primarily of two minerals: a grass-green clinopyroxene called omphacite and a red or red-brown garnet. In spite of the basaltic composition, plagioclase does not occur in eclogites. Petrogenetically, this is very significant.

Eclogite is rock of mafic composition (igneous rock relatively low in silica) that has been buried to 50 kilometres or more. At this depth, everyday minerals such as plagioclase feldspar or augite are no longer stable and they break down, allowing the rock to grow new denser (more attractive) minerals that are better suited to higher pressures.

By using U–Pb geochronology on eclogites and related rocks in the MLC, we will demonstrate not only the difficulty of dating high-pressure rocks in general, but also show that the MLC does not represent, as previously thought, an allochthon of Palaeozoic origin.

THE term "eclogite" was first introduced into the geological literature of Europe in by Haiiy in his Traith de mineralogie, in which he gave the name to a rock composed chiefly of green augite and garnets.

Chemical analyses of thirteen rocks, eight garnets, six clinopyroxenes, and nine amphiboles are presented. Field evidence shows that the eclogites and associated mafic rocks occur as sheets or lenses conformable with pelitic and calcareous rocks and have been metamorphosed in situ.

The associated country rocks have attained a metamorphic. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books.

The Koidu eclogites range from nearly pristine rocks with alteration restricted to grain boundaries (e.g., KEC ) to samples with highly altered, opaque clinopyroxene with small relict areas of pristine omphacite in the centers of crystals (e.g., KEC ) (see Fig.
