    Abstract: Quartz crystallographic preferred orientations (CPO) from three distinct orthogneisses using both the Electron Back Scatter Diffraction (EBSD) and Fabric Analyser (FA) techniques reveal a clear trend from basal <a > and rhomb <a + c > slip for high P-T conditions (670 +/- 20 degrees C/9 kbar), rhomb <a + c > and basal <a > slip for medium P-T (590 +/- 15 degrees C/6 kbar) and a dominance of prism <a > slip for lower P T conditions (
