Plate Nimi-1 Elongated tabular crystals of staurolite and muscovite flakes along foliation in chlorite-biotite-muscovite-garnet-staurolite schist with quartz and feldspar from the Nimi Formation at the eastern tectonic margin of the NHO. Staurolite is strongly pleochroic and possibly formed by reactions involving chlorite, muscovite and garnet (32/80-3)
