Garnet and pyroxene from some kimberlite eclogites and from eclogites and anorthosites of the Bergen Arcs contain highly birefringent acicular inclusions with inclined extinction. Microprobe and X-ray studies have identified the inclusions as rutile, elongated in an unidentified anomalous direction. The anomalous habit is inferred to reflect exsolution during cooling at high pressures.
