Light-gray- to pinkish-white-weathering, light-grayish-pink to pinkish-white, medium-grained, moderately layered and foliated gneiss containing quartz, microcline, and epidote. Some phases contain scapolite. May be interlayered with and related to potassium-feldspar gneiss (Yk), and (or) clinopyroxene-quartz-feldspar gneiss (Ymp). Two elongate bodies mapped east of Franklin.
