|a) S-C -C'fabric in porphyrytic orthogneiss at Reru close to the river and bridge.||b) S-C -C'fabric in porphyrytic orthogneiss and narrow shear leucogranite dykes, at Reru close to the river and bridge.|
|c) S-C -C'fabric in porphyrytic orthogneiss at Reru close to the river and bridge.||d) S-C -C'fabric in porphyrytic orthogneiss and narrow shear leucogranite dykes, at Reru close to the river and bridge.|
|e) S-C rotation of three parallel dykelets. Top-side down, normal shearing.|
|e) An excellent example of C', on same granite as a and b.||f) An excellent example of C', on same granite as a and b.|
|g) An excellent example of C', on orthogneiss.||h) S-C fabric and delta clasts derived from the breaking up of leucogranite dykes, cut by a synthetic shear zone, parallel to C'. Note that some of the veinlets are continuous over most of the photograph.|
|i) A more competent Tml- leucogranite layer (underneath the lens cap), with an internal foliation, truncated by the C-plane of shearing, both above (right) and below (left) , parallel to layering.||j) Detail of (i).|
|k)Continuous leucogranite dyke from upper left to lower right, folded asymmmetrically, and cut by synthetic shear zones, with right-side-down.||l) on the right, folded leucogranite below a dyke parallel to C-plane and cut by normal synthetic shear zone.|
