Summary:These pegmatite dyke swarms intrude high-grade Cambro-Ordovician metasediments but do not show obvious relationships to Hercynian intrusive rocks. Quartz, microcline, albite, idiomorphic garnet, acicular tourmaline and folded muscovite characterize the early series of pegmatite veins. A second series of pegmatites shows no deformation, lack 'disharmonic fibrolite' and are fine-grained. Equilibrium O-isotope fractionations at approx 600 degrees C, lack of subsolidus exchange, and H- and O-isotopic signatures of water in equilibrium with mica and quartz and other data suggest derivation of the pegmatites from anatexis of metapelites at shallow crustal levels.
