Metabasites from the northern serpentinite belt (Cuba) and a metamorphic perspective of the plate tectonic models for the Caribbean region Abstract The analysis of metamorphosed magmatic rocks along the northern serpentinite belt (Cuba) suggest a variety of tectonic settings of formation and metamorphism. Slightly deformed coherent bodies of metabasites from Cajálbana (western Cuba) and Iguará-Perea…read more

Oscillatory zoning in eclogitic garnet and amphibole, Northern Serpentinite Melange, Cuba: a record of tectonic instability during subduction? Abstract Exotic blocks of eclogite from distant localities along the Northern Serpentinite Melange of Cuba have comparable P–T histories that include high-pressure prograde sections (450–600 °C, >15 kbar) associated with subduction of oceanic lithosphere, and retrograde sections within the albite–epidote…read more
High-grade metamorphism and hydrous melting of metapelites in the Pinos terrane (W Cuba): Evidence for crustal thickening and extension in the northern Caribbean collisional belt Abstract The Pinos terrane (Isle of Pines, W Cuba) is a coherent metamorphic complex that probably represents a portion of the continental margin of the Yucatan Block during the Mesozoic.…read more
Genesis of sulfide-rich chromite ores by the interaction between chromitite and pegmatitic olivine-norite dikes in the Potosí Mine (Moa-Baracoa ophiolitic massif, eastern Cuba) Abstract The Potosí Mine is located in the Moa-Baracoa massif in the easternmost part of the Cuban Ophiolitic Belt. Chromite mineralization occurs within the mantle–crust transition zone. Two events of magma intrusion…read more
