Abstract: In the Forland Complex chloritoid is restricted to the grey and green phyllites which characterize the Scotia and Peachflya groups. The textures and compositions of the rocks and constituent minerals are described and discussed in an attempt to assess how metamorphism, deformation, and chemistry have influenced the stability of chloritoid.
