GSA Special Paper 472

This Special Paper contains proceedings from the Sixth Hutton Symposium on the Origin of Granites and Related Rocks, which was held in Stellenbosch, South Africa, from 2–6 July 2007. Opening with an historical account of how the Cape granites influenced thinking on the origins of these rocks in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the balance of the volume’s papers cover the many ways in which granite research is evolving. In his preface outlining the volume’s 16 papers, John D. Clemens notes, “...there is a great degree of variety here, and something for nearly every taste.”
