Western Gneiss Region of Norway. Microdiamonds has been found in a mantle-derived peridotite lens.
LT-UHP mantellic (> 13 km) websterite pod.
Diamond are foud as inclusions in spinel included within pyrope megacrysts. They were formed from infiltrating UHP-LT fluids.
UHP diamond-bearing garnet-kyanite gneisses and derived kyanite-garnet-sillimanite-biotite-plagioclase mylonites (sinistral shear fabrics).
