Almenningden, Northern fjords, Norway. Eclogite typically results from the high pressure metamorphism of mafic igneous rock, such as basalt and gabbros at depths of 50Km. or more in the mantle or lower crust. It is composed of mainly two minerals, reddish-brown Almandine pyrope garnet, and the green sodium rich pyroxene Omphacite. Other minerals such as Kyanite may also be present. This specimen is not from my mineral collection, but from my rock collection. However, I simply wanted to share my love of this specimen, which was presented to me by Ex chair of the club, Michele Becker, and other friends.
