Summary:Microprobe analyses of the continuous chemical evolution of coexisting biotite-garnet and biotite-garnet-staurolite in interbedded mica schists of the volcano-detrital Vilaine group indicate a complex P-T evolution, continuous throughout time, from high-P, medium-T (kyanite zone) to medium-P, high-T (sillimanite zone), and then low-P, medium-T (andalusite zone). The T, P, fH2O and XH2O variations have been calculated from coexisting biotite-garnet pairs, and from the equilibria paragonite (in white mica) + quartz reverse= albite (in plagioclase) + Al-silicate + H2O and 3 anorthite reverse= grossular + 2 Al-silicate + quartz. The P-T evolution is correlated with the continuous change in composition of minerals (using P-XMg and T-XMg diagrams) and with the evolution of assemblages. This continuous P-T time evolution, correlated with successive development of foliations, allows the construction of a P-T-time-deformation path for these schists and the relation of the growth of mineral components to tectonic processes.
