Summary:The Kaipola layered gabbro-diorite intrusion occurs near the E tip of the Tampere schist belt. It has well preserved primary igneous layering and cumulus textures showing distinctive large-scale repetitive layering, with at least seven megacyclic units. A striking feature is the extensive growth of large oikocrysts of green and brown amphibole (pargasite) indicative of the circulation of volatile-rich magma or fluid at the post-cumulus stage. Some of the poikilitic amphibole formed by interstitial crystallization, but most of it was produced by peritectic replacement of cumulus pyroxenes and plagioclase. [R.A.H.]
