The products of Miocene volcanic activity in the Slovenský Raj Mts., Middle Slovakia, are in the Lesnica Valley located SE of Čingov. Magmatic rocks comprise a volcanic intrusive complex represented by a swarm of feeder dikes and sporadic relics of hyaloclastite lavas. They intruded a complex of the Triassic Bodvaszilas sandstones and carbonates of...

The lower part of the Bôrka Nappe is lithologically connected with the underlying Gemer Unit Paleozoic basement as a source of siliciclastic sediments. The higher part of inferred Lower to Middle Triassic siliciclastic and carbonatic sediments, with calc-alkaline basic volcanics interlayers, moreover contains newly discovered rhyolitic metavolcanic...

Basaltic rocks from ophiolitic mélanges provide information on geodynamic setting, origin, and later tectonometamorphic conditions. This paper resolves the P–T conditions and timing of high-pressure metamorphism in an accretionary wedge that formed during the Late Jurassic closure of the Neotethyan Meliata Basin. Blueschist-facies metabasites of th...

Full-text available
Nearly a half of known IMA-approved minerals (as of November 2021) are reported from four localities or fewer and so may be considered rare mineral species. These minerals form a continuum with more common species (e.g., rock-forming minerals), all of which constitute important constituents of Earth and contributors to its dynamics. To better under...

The Dinaride Ophiolite Belt formed from the Jurassic part of the Neotethys. The investigated Ozren ophiolite complex in Bosnia and Herzegovina consists of peridotites, plagioclase peri-dotites, plagiogranites, troctolites and other gabbroic rocks, and fewer basalts. Lherzolites and harzburgites contain corroded ortho- and clinopyroxene1 porphyrocla...

Mafic dyke swarms intrude the Paleogene granitoids of Antarctic Peninsula Batholith on the Argentine Islands near the Graham Coast, West Antarctica (Fig. 1). They are typically well-preserved and lack signs of tectonic reworking. However, comparable to the host rocks, some dykes bear the signature of greenstone alteration in several places. These d...

Pegmatites with rare-element mineralization from the Aswan area in southern Egypt intruded the post-orogenic Pan-African granitic rocks and the associated gneisses. The granitic pegmatites show a regular pattern of concentric zoning and display a weak affinity to the Nb-Y-F (NYF) pegmatite family. These pegmatites consist mainly of K-feldspar, albi...
