Summary:The results of XRF major and trace element (Rb, Sr, Y, Zr, Nb, Ba, Th, Pb, and Ni) analyses of 198 Sanbagawa pelitic schists are listed along with their mineral assemblages. The average chemical compositions of the Sanbagawa pelitic schist are given as follows. Major element in weight percent: SiO2 68.94(3.17); TiO2 0.55(0.10); Al2O3 15.12(1.22); Fe2O3 4.49(1.07); MnO 0.14(0.08); MgO 1.68(0.51); Ca O.0.99(0.75); Na2O 2.47(0.83); K2O 3.02(0.55); P2O5 0.11(0.02); loss of ignition 2.14(0.62) ; trace element in ppm; Rb 119(21); Sr 129(60); Y 21.1(4.7); Zr 144(17); Nb 9.6(1.4); Ba 486(103); Th 12.7(2.1); Pb 18.7(5.7); Ni 15.7(11.0); 1σ of standard deviations in parentheses.
