Detailed Mineral List:
Almandine
Formula: Fe2+3Al2(SiO4)3
Reference: Krogh, E.J. (1977): Origin and metamorphism of iron formations and associated rocks, Lofoten-Vesterålen, N. Norway. I. The Vestpolltind Fe-Mn-deposit. Lithos, 10: 243-255
Corundum
Formula: Al2O3
Reference: Krogh, E.J. (1977): Origin and metamorphism of iron formations and associated rocks, Lofoten-Vesterålen, N. Norway. I. The Vestpolltind Fe-Mn-deposit. Lithos, 10: 243-255
