Abstract (in english)
   he Pernštejn Turmalinite is situated in the southern part of the Svratka Unit near the border with Moldanubicum. It underwent a retrogressive low-to-medium grade regional metamorphism which produced quartz segregations within the tourmalinite. Fine-grained tourmalinite dominantly consists of quartz and tourmalinite (dravite-schorl). The tourmaline is elongated, euhedral to subhedral grains are typically < 0.5 mm in size. Tourmaline (dravite-schorl) from quartz segregations forms euhedral grains, from 0.5 to 10 mm in size, locally associated with kyanite, andalusite, muscovite, apatite and accessory rutile. There is only a negligible difference between tourmaline from tourmaline and quartz segregations. Tourmaline of both paragenetic types is characterized by moderate to high vacancies in the X-site, up to 45 at.%, and moderate to high F contents varying from 0.32 to 0.56 apfu.
   It also exhibit Fe-Mg ratios and Al contents typical for tourmaline in metapelites and metapsammites with an Al-saturating phase (e.g., kyanite, andalusite). Formation of the quartz segregations with coarse-grained tourmaline and kyanite began during a retrogressive kyanite grade metamorphic event at P 3-4 kbar and T > 400-500°C through the kyanite-andalusite transition to the andalusite grade. The presence of tourmaline as the only ferro-magnesium mineral and the presence of Si-, Al- and Ti-saturating phases, i.e., qaurtz, kyanite/andalusite and rutile, respectively, buffered these elements during the mobilization process which produced the quartz segregations
