Abstract

Direct evidences or magmatic convective flow in granitic pluton are scarce. The possible complex history
of magma cooling in pluton can delele partially or completely this registration. We describe a complex
elliptical structure in a porphyritic monzogranite and the granitic fabric around this. We distinguish three
zones based on the study of their morphology and internal Structures (cross-cutting layering, curved
schlierens, lobulated mafic-leucocratic laminate). We propose a model of verticall flow pipes with motion
or magma generation point. Three possible convective build the elliptical structure. This model is
similar those proposed in the literature for snail and ladder dike structures. Fabric defined by K-feldspars
megacryst in the inmediatelly surrounding is basically linear to 355·010º
