Abstract: There is an association between the development of cleavage domes, a texture reflecting the displacement of insoluble matrix grains by porphyroblasts growing under a bulk hydrostatic stress, and textural sector-zoning. This has been found in garnet, staurolite, chiastolite, pyrite and possibly emerald porphyroblasts. Sector-zoned porphyroblasts form by lineage growth normal to the crystal faces. This causes several distinctive textures (type 1 inclusions and type 2 intergrowths, inclusion bands, growth prongs), all of which are directly or indirectly related to displacement growth. Graphite or other carbonaceous material is ubiquitous in samples showing textural sector-zoning.
