Summary: Chemical analyses together with optical and physical properties are given for ferroan bustamite, rhodonite, spessartine, spessartine-grossular, and tephroite from contact metamorphosed cale-silicate rocks of the Meldon Railway Quarry, Okehampton. The compositions of these minerals are compared to those from the Treburland manganese mine, Cornwall. An analysis is also given of a spessartine from a pyrrhotite-spessartine skarn rock from the nearby Meldon aplite quarry.
