STILPNOMELANE has been found as a constituent of the schists of many low-grade areas throughout the world1–3. In the Dalradian it has been described from the South-west Highland epidiorites4–6 but not from the greywackes and pelites of the Upper Dalradian, although it is mentioned as occurring in “the quartzo-feldspathic green schists of the Southern Dalradian” by Voll7.
