The Mn-rich rocks are made up of highly oxidized quartzitic schists, quartzites and Mn-rich pyroxenoid and carbonate rocks. The ferromanganoan metasediments in central Andros form part of a volcano-sedimentary sequence that experienced low grade, high pressure metamorphism (P > 1,1 GPa; T = 360°-420°C) followed along the uplift path by a greenschist facies overprint.
