The anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility was measured on 42 gabbros sampled across a complete plutonic sequence from the Oman ophiolite. The rock fabrics, investigated in the field and through plagioclase crystallographic fabric measurements, were compared to the magnetic fabrics. This comparative study reveals that from the paleo-Moho to the top of the foliated gabbros level, 73% of the rocks display a good correspondence in orientation, between the magnetic and rock fabric orientation.
