The central part of the Sahatany Pegmatite Field is situated ca 25 km SW of the town of Antsirabe. A large number of pegmatites of both beryl type LCT pegmatites and complex type LCT pegmatites are found in this area, and many of them have been worked for gem polychromatic tourmalines, rose beryl, spodumene, rose quartz etc.
An inventory of the pegmatites is found in Rakotoarison (1964).
The pegmatites (age: Pan-African event ca 550 MA) are hosted in a Precambrian tectonic unit that consists mainly of schists, quartzites, and marbles (série schisto-quartzo-dolomitique).

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Neoproterozoic to Ordovician : 652 ± 45 Ma to 464 ± 9 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
