Abstract This study focuses on pumpellyite veins cross-cutting the metadolerites of the Frido Unit Ophiolites (Southern Apennines - Italy). Pumpellyite occurs in the metadolerites as felt-radiated aggregates or prism filling veins; metadolerites show mineral assemblages of the prehnite–pumpellyite and lawsonite-glaucophane metamorphic facies. Texture and composition of minerals in these veins are heterogeneous as revealed by SEM and EMPA characterisations, respectively. Either in the host rocks… CONTINUE READING
