Fact sheet
Description: 

A Dalradian pelite from the central part of the Ox Mountain range, it is included to show garnet porphyroblasts that have grown over crenulated schistosity, consistent with the view that peak temperatures in this part of the Grampian orogenic belt were reached after deforation (associated with crustal thickening) was over.
