Late Eocene lawsonite-eclogite facies metasomatism of a granulite sliver associated to ophiolites in Alpine Corsica

Martin, Laure; Rubatto, Daniela; Brovarone, Alberto Vitale; Hermann, Joerg


The metamorphic history of two samples of continental slivers from Alpine Corsica is reconstructed on the basis of detailed petrology, trace and major element geochemistry of the bulk rock and of metamorphic minerals, and U-Pb dating of zircon.A lawsonite fels with a Ca-rich and Si, Na, K-poor bulk composition, and a garnet-bearing schist were investigated. They both exhibit strongly zoned garnet crystals characterised by cores with high Mg# (0.25-0.33), low grossular component (0.03-0.09) and...[Show more]
