Abstract

Observed differences in c-axis fabrics between quartz porphyroclasts and recrystallized quartz from the same quartzite samples suggest some changes in the fabric-forming parameters during deformation. The fabric patterns are consistent with a change in the incremental strain history from flattening to constriction during duplex development, which is supported by the observed overprinting of structures in the field.
