  • Abstract Several coesite grains along garnet-omphacite grain boundaries were discovered in eclogites from Yangkou Beach of the Sulu region, eastern China. These grains exhibit variable extents of conversion of coesite to palisade- through mosaic- to granoblastic-quartz aggregates. The rare occurrence of intergranular and matrix coesite in ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) crustal rocks is related to the fast rate of exhumation and the low amount of fluid infiltration required during retrograde… CONTINUE READING
