Lavas and intrusives from Ayios Mamas, at the western end of the Limassol Forest Complex, south of the Arakapas Fault Belt, Troodos, comprise three groups: (A) a basal sequence of pillow lavas (intruded by dikes and sills) with the phenocryst assemblage PLAG+CPX+MT±OL; (B) a middle sequence of pillows and massive flows [CPX+PLAG±OL]; and (C) an upper sequence mostly of pillows and breccia [OL+OPX+CPX+SP]. The lower group is tholeiitic, and the upper two groups boninitic. Group C whole-rock and… CONTINUE READING
