Summary: Segregations of compact chlorite from ultramafic belts in New South Wales have been examined using chemical, X-ray, differential thermal, and electronprobe techniques. The chlorites vary from pennine to sheridanite. Some segregations occupy the central zone in metasomatic sequences of altered chromite, chlorite, and lizardite; but others may have formed at junctions of serpentinite and rodingite.
