Abstract: Chromite inclusions in uvarovite-chrome garnet, chemically zoned chromite-chrome spinel and chrome spinel-olivine pairs from metacarbonates of the Oetztal-Stubai Complex (northern Tyrol, Austria) are described in terms of their textural occurrences and chemical compositions. Their genetic relationship in relation to the polymetamorphism of the region is discussed.

Keywords: chromite • metacarbonates • Oetztal-Stubai Complex, Austria
