This group of rocks consists of three main lithologies: (i) a monotonous sequence of schists and quartz-schists; (ii) fine-grained gneisses with intercalations or boudins of schists and metabasites; and (iii) metabasites which, in the vicinity of the gneisses, contain boudins of fine-grained gneisses and schists.
