Abstract

Twenty pairs of coexisting hornblende and biotite samples from gneisses and schists of epidote-amphibolite metamorphic facies were analysed spectrographically for major and minor elements. A number of the minor elements are well equilibrated, some to very low concentrations. Possible variations in distribution coefficients with metamorphic grade are considered.
