    The peraluminous Cardigan Pluton of New Hampshire contains restitic garnetites with abundant peritectic garnet that serves as a basis for comparison with garnet in the host-rock. The peritectic garnet is inclusion-rich and contains high concentrations of heavy rare earth elements (HREE), Sc, and...
