Bulaidah


Pyroxene quartzite outcrop situated 3.6 kilometers NNW of Bulaydah town.

Layered pyroxene quartzite/gneisses (granulite facies equivalent of a chert-hosted sedimentary Mn-deposit).

The quartzite contains boudin or augen-shaped clusters of Mn/Mg pyroxenes or Mn/Fe ore.

Bani Hamid granulite-facies metamorphic unit is characterized by quartz-rich rocks with two pyroxene-magnetite-titanohematite, enstatite-sapphirine-magnetite/spinel-titanohematite, or cordierite-sillimanite-magnetite-titanohematite assemblages.
