Macroscopic: Garnet-muscovite bearing granitic pegmatite. Visible, green beryl may be present as beryl is often associated with pegmatites. The mineralogy is typical of sedimentary protolith granites which supports the hypothesis that the basement of the Maguma Terrane is pelitic. Thin section pictures in XPL unless otherwise noted in the title of the picuture. Thin sections are 3mm across.
