Abstract Data from analyses of three coexisting pairs of pyroxenes with a wide range of Fe content from each of two localities are used to show the large systematic variation and predictable correlation of Fe (or Mg) of a pyroxene with its content of Al, Mn and Na in mafic granulites. Comparisons of pyroxenes can then be made more meaningful by normalizing Al, or other elements, to an appropriate Mg value. As both P and T may affect the element distribution of the two pyroxenes differently (especially Al and Na) the factor used in normalizing is found to vary from region to region.
