Description: This image represents a high grade metamorphic rock (granulite facies) illustrating a radial spray of birefringent gedrite-anthophyllite laths intergrown with cordierite (black). Grey inclusions of Th-monazite are common throughout the gedrite-anthophyllite laths. The rock was studied for its iron formation potential.
