Schistose amphibolite and metagabbro are represented by fine-grained, equigranular rocks of granonematoblastic, nematoblastic, relict gabbro, poikilitic texture.
The metamorphic units comprise garnet-glaucophane schist (lepi-doporphyroblastic texture), epidote-chlorite schist (lepidoblastic texture), garnet-lawsonite-glaucophane schist and epidotite (nematoblastic texture) (Fig.
However, most of the studied metabasites are nematoblastic amphibolites, consisting of Amp, Ep, Rt, Chl, Qz [+ or -] Grt [+ or -] white-mica [+ or -] Cb and Ilm [+ or -] Ttn after Rt.
The textures in the rocks are nematoblastic and granoblastic.
The textures found in the rocks are nematoblastic, granoblastic and porphyroblastic.
The existent textures include nematoblastic, granoblastic, porphyroblastic and poikiloblastic.
