In the Napperby Gneiss, central Australia, a distinctive group of elongate leucosomes occurs along the axial planes of mesoscopic crenulations that have harmonic, two-dimensional, kink band-like geometries. The leucosomes truncate a fabric defined by biotite, quartz, K-feldspar, plagioclase + sillimanite and are chiefly composed of K-feldspar and quartz with or without plagioclase. They are characterized by accessory garnet or aggregates of intergrown ilmenite and magnetite produced during the… CONTINUE READING
