Pharaoh Mountain Gneiss of Wiener and others (1984)

Rusty-grayish-brown- to brown-weathering, knubbly coarse-grained magnetite-garnet-hornblende and pyroxene-bearing charnockitic gneiss and garnet-hornblende granite gneiss. Has large polycrystalline aggregates of plagioclase as much as 1.5 cm long, recrystallized from pre-Ottawan phenocrysts (?) of plagioclase. Contains mappable and folded screens of marble, calc-silicate rock (Y2cs), mafic diopside-hypersthene gneiss, and interbedded sillimanite-garnet quartzite (Y2qz). Interpreted as largely intrusive but may contain some charnockitic gneiss of uncertain origin. Rocks of the Adirondacks in Vermont and in the Whitehall, N.Y., area.
