Abstract

The Sarıkaraman Ophiolite is one of the least dismembered ophiolitic units of the allochthonous Central Anatolian Ophiolites, which retains its recognizable pseudostratigraphy. The Sarıkaraman Ophiolite is represented in its lowermost part by isotropic gabbros. Within the isotropic gabbro sequence, clinopyroxenes are observed as small, colorless relicts with a cloudy appearance. In most of the samples, they are completely replaced by a successive generation of green to brown amphiboles. Clinopyroxenes display diopsitic to augitic compositions within the range of En 45 Fs 5 Wo 49 to En 50 Fs 9 Wo 41 . They are Ca-rich and Na-poor (Na 2 O
