Três Pontas nappe (Quartz-K feldspar-kyanite-garnet gneisses, kyanite-garnet granulites associated with impure quartzites, calc-silicates rocks and ultramafic sills and lenses).
Lenses (boudins) of quartz+feldspar leucosomes within kyanite Al-grnulites and ultramafic lenses of phlogopite orthopyroxenites and garnet clinopyroxenites.
UHP metamorphic rocks recrystallized into high-grade granulite at shallower levels during exhumation (collision zone).
