The Sambagawa metamorphic belt in the Bizan area consists mainly of pelitic schists, basic schists, and siliceous schists (garnet-aegirine-augite schists), along with minor garnet glaucophane schists. The garnet?aegirine-augite schists consist mainly of quartz and phengite, with minor amounts of amphibole (ferroglaucophane, magnesioriebeckite, riebeckite, Mg-katophorite, winchite, barroisite, ferrobarroisite), garnet, aegirine-augite and albite. Hematite, chlorite, epidote, calcite and titanite occur, occasionally phengites are found in eight modes of occurrence; phengites as inclusions in porphyroblastic garnet (Ph1), amphibole (Ph2), clinopyroxene (Ph3) and albite (Ph4), phengites (Ph5) occurring in the matrix, and phengites as a secondary mineral replacing porphyroblastic garnet (Ph6), amphibole (Ph7) and clinopyroxene (Ph8) along their rim and crack. The diversity of the modes of occurrence and chemical compositions of the phengites reflects two metamorphic events in the garnet-aegirine-augite schists in the Bizan area. Inclusions in garnet (Ph1), amphibole (Ph2) and clinopyroxene (Ph3) and schistosity-forming phengites (Ph5) are representative of the prograde to the peak metamorphism of the eclogitic metamorphic event. Phengites replacing garnet (Ph6), amphibole (Ph7) and clinopyroxene (Ph8) and phengites inclusions in porphyroblastic albites (Ph4) suggest another high-pressure epidote-amphibolite metamorphic event.
