(Loire-Inférieure, Waldviertel, Ceylon, United States), the pyroxenic gneisses are in evident relation with the calcareous metamorphic rocks. We have shown how the existence of scapolite in these rocks is generally in direct relation with these limestones.

We have likewise studied the junctions of these scapolite-bearing pyroxenic gneisses with granulite, in Brittany. By means of petrographical peculiarities that we have noticed there we have been able to explain the remarkable modifications that we have met with in the similar rocks of Norway and of America, although we are unacquainted with the eruptive granulite which has produced them in the latter localities.
