Microphotographs 5a-l portray diverse petrographic features of dark gray restites and Mansehra Granite: (a,b) schistose restite MR-10 signifies zircon (Zrn) halo in biotite (Bt) and presence of muscovite (Ms) sheets (c) Sample MR-16 specifies zircon (Zrn) with dark halo in schistose restite (d,e) Abundance of larger biotite (Bt) flake and marginal mylonization at the contact between schistose (Sch) restite and Granite (Grnt) respectively in sample MR-27 (f) Muscovite (Ms) flakes swirled around feldspar (Fsp) due to stress at the contact between schistose restite and Mansehra Granite (MR-27) (g) Lepidoblastic texture and noticeable crenulation cleavage in schistose restite, sample MR-27 (h) MR-30 indicates muscovite (Ms) and biotite (Bt) flake swirled around unmelted core of feldspar (Fsp) at the contact between schistose restite and Mansehra Granite (i) Tectonic bending in biotite (Bt) comprising zircon (Zrn) at the contact between schistose restite and Mansehra Granite in MR-30 (j,k) Mansehra Granite presenting strained quartz (Qz), primary (coarse) and secondary (smaller) muscovite (Ms) flakes and plagioclase (Pl) sericitization, twinning in MG-8,11 respectively (l) Deformed muscovite (Ms) and anhedral strained quartz (Qz) in Mansehra Granite MG-15.
