Summary:The stable magnetization of the serpentinite, troctolite and gabbro of the Lizard complex is considered to have been acquired during their initial formation in an ocean-floor environment, and to have survived the tectonic processes associated with emplacement of an ophiolite. The possibility of Permian remagnetization, however, cannot be completely ruled out. [R.A.H.]
