Octahedral graphite aggregates are present in garnet pyroxenites from the Ronda peridotite massif, southern Spain. In the aggregates, basal {0001} planes of graphite are parallel to {111} of the octahedra, demonstrating that the graphite is pseudomorphic after a cubic mineral. The aggregates contain clinopyroxene inclusions that have a morphology atypical of a monoclinic phase, demonstrating that the precursor diamond has imposed a cubic symmetry. Graphitized diamonds at Ronda and Beni Bousera… CONTINUE READING
