Granulose albitic gneiss

Massive to poorly layered, highly lineated, light-tannish-gray to grayish-green, medium-grained, granulose, epidote-magnetite-biotite (chlorite)-muscovite-albite-quartz gneiss, veined with magnetite; spots of ankerite and clots of chlorite after original amphibole, pyroxene, or garnet are common. Highly altered rock is perhaps metasomatic and related to 1,170- to 1,120-Ma period of granitic intrusions. Unit shows all gradations from pinkish-gray biotite-quartz-plagioclase gneiss having centimeter-thick veins of garnet-bearing albitic micropegmatite, to nonlayered albitic granulose white gneiss. Occurs in central Green Mountain massif from Plymouth to Shrewsbury, on Robinson Hill, and along the eastern margin of the Green Mountain massif east of Rutland. Mount Holly Complex intrusive rocks. Rocks of the Green Mountain and Lincoln Mountain massifs and eastern domes.
