Chemial analyses of twelve amphiboles from the area around Terakanambi are presented. Results indicate that they are ferro-hornblende and ferro-pargasitic hornblende types in banded iron formations; magnesio hornblende in ultramafic rocks and edenite; and ferroan pargasite and ferroan pargasitic hornblende types in calcamphibolites. Titanium content in the amphiboles of the present study is relatively low compared to results from similar zones elsewhere. The lower titanium content of the amphiboles may be attributed to either bulk chemical composition or to low oxygen fugacity. Mg/Fe ratios vary considerably and it is mainly controlled by host rock composition. The plots of calcic amphiboles on (lOONa/Ca + Na)/(100 Al/Si + Al) and Aliv/Alvi diagrams indicate that they are of medium to low pressure type. © 1988 Indian Academy of Sciences.
