  • Abstract We studied a special type of zebra carbonate in limestones of an overpressure cell exhumed from at 5 km depth, in outcrops on Jabal Shams, Oman Mountains. The rocks show anastomosing patterns of regularly spaced calcite veins in dark gray, fine-grained carbonate; microscopic observations reveal these as dense bundles of much finer veinlets, typically 10–50 μm thick. The vein bundles are up to 5 mm thick, they contain multiple sub-parallel arrays of host rock fragments embedded in the… CONTINUE READING
