Abstract

A NUMBER of papers have appeared in the geological literature in which the relationship between inclusion fabrics of garnets and the surrounding matrix has been interpreted as giving information of deformational significance; the paper by Harris and Rast1 may be cited as a recent example. As a result of the microscopic examination of some two thousand garnets in the course of three separate geochemical studies (to be published) we are of the opinion that some of the interpretations put forward in earlier work are not the only possibilities which could account for the observed fabric patterns.
