Polyphase inclusions in garnet-orthopyroxenite (Dabie Shan, China) as monitors for metasomatism and fluid-related trace element transfer in subduction zone peridotite

Malaspina, N; Hermann, Joerg; Scambelluri, Marco; Compagnoni, Roberto


The ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) Maowu Ultramafic Complex (Dabie Shan, China) is hosted by coesite-bearing gneisses. Textural and geochemical data demonstrate that garnet-orthopyroxenites within the ultramafic complex derive from garnet-harzburgite precursors that have been metasomatised at peak UHP conditions (4.0 ± 1.0 GPa, 750 ± 50 °C) by the addition of a silica- and incompatible trace element-rich fluid phase (hydrous melt), sourced from the associated crustal rocks. This metasomatism produced...[Show more]
