This micrograph illustrates a mylonite from the Hylas Zone in the eastern Piedmont ~5 km west of Doswell, Virginia. The rock is characterized by a well-developed foliation with elongate quartz ribbons (transparent grains) and feldspar porphyroclasts. The rock originally was a granodiorite that was strongly deformed and sheared, under ductile conditions, into a mylonite. Checkout this blog post for more information on the Hylas Zone. Plain light micrograph.
