Recent advances in petrologic studies on kelyphite and symplectite, the reaction textures in metamorphic rocks, are reviewed. Kelyphitization of garnet is a phase transition phenomenon accompanied by a long range material transfer between garnet and olivine crystals. The microstructure of kelyphite is mostly constructed at the reaction front via short range material transfer along the garnet crystal surfaces and by the topotaxial crystal growth of pyroxenes and spinel. The law of normality anddoi:10.2465/gkk.36.168 fatcat:qapnd6qquzfipcz2l5l6wallae
