The “Mixed series” metamorphic complex situated in the Pelagonian massif near the Nežilovo village, about 40 km SW of Veles, Republic of Macedonia, is a metamorphosed volcanosedimentary formation composed mainly of albite augen gneisses and meta-rhyolites around which there are lenses of dolomitic marbles metasomatically replaced by very unusual and complex mineral assemblages.

Located about 15 km NW of the village of Nežilovo and about 40 km SW of the city of Veles, Macedonia.

541 - 4000 Ma

ID: 1377015
Precambrian intrusive and metamorphic terranes

Age: Precambrian (541 - 4000 Ma)

Comments: Mixtures of metamorphic and intrusive or plutonic rocks, tracts known as crystalline, migmatitic terranes, moderately to highly metamorphosed rocks of unknown origin with or without intrusions. This classification is inherently prone to variable interpretation, as other compilers might distinguish some packages by their metamorphic or gneissic protoliths, and the associated age ranges may be more variable.

Lithology: Intrusive and metamorphic terranes
