The mineral geochem. was studied of the Ca amphiboles in the charnockites of Karnataka. The majority of the analyzed amphiboles occur within a narrow range of the Fetotal/(Fetotal + Mg) values. The minerals show all the chem. characteristics of high-​Al2O3, high-​Ti, and alkali hornblendes from other granulite-​facies areas. According to the nomenclature of B. E. Leake (1978)​, they are ferroan pargasitic hornblende [95725-​82-​9]​. The variation of the Si-​Al in the samples is due to a combination of independent parameters, namely pressure, temp. of metamorphic crystn., and O2 fugacity. The AlIV and AlVI relation in the hornblendes is a function of Ti substitution.
