dc.description.abstract Three 4-10-mm coarse fines cataclasized particles from Station 7 on the Apennine Front, Apollo 15, have mineral phases and compositions similar to those in the quartz monzodiorites in 15405, from Station 6a. The chemical analyses of the Station 7 particles have lower trace-element abundances and flatter rare earth element patterns, and there is considerable disagreement among and between mineral norms and modes. The zoning of pyroxenes and the nature of their exsolution strongly suggest a common origin of the three particles and 15405 quartz monzodiorites in a hypabyssal environment. en
