A small gabbro intrusion has been analysed for 16 trace elements to see their behaviour under magmatic differentiation, scapolitization, and regional metamorphism. V and Cr were concentrated in the later members of the magmatic differentiation series. Mn, Ga, Sr, and Ba were leached during the scapolitization, while no trace element seems to have been introduced. During the regional metamorphism Rb was introduced while Mn was removed.
