Summary: Two-pyroxene feldspar gneisses and associated ultramafic rocks of the Jotun Kindred in Southern Jotunheimen display mineralogical layering believed to be of original igneous origin. The geological structure of part of the strati-form massif is described, and is shown to provide a basis, hitherto lacking, for systematic study of the mineralogical and chemical variation of the suite.
