The age of HP metamorphism in the Gran Paradiso Massif, Western Alps: A petrological and geochronological study of silvery micaschists

Radulescu, Ioan Gabudianu; Rubatto, Daniela; Gregory, Courtney; Compagnoni, Roberto


We present a petrological and geochronological study of "silvery micaschists" that crop out in the northern side of the Gran Paradiso Massif, Western Alps, with the aim of constraining P-T conditions and age of the Alpine high-pressure metamorphism. The studied "silvery micaschists", which are the products of metasomatic alteration of granitoids along ductile shear zones, consist of Mg-chlorite, talc, chloritoid, minor phengite, and accessory minerals. Microstructural relationships indicate the...[Show more]
