Abstract (in english)
   1. The carbonate rocks of the Stronie Formation occur as assemblages of several separate bodies outcropping along the distance of a few kilometres. Individual bodies are some tens of metres thick and up to several hundreds of metres long lenses. Their relationship to country rocks is of primary, sedimentary character. 2. Eight lithotypes ranging from calcite marbles to carbonate-silicate rocks have been discerned. 3. The carbonate rocks are spatially associated with metavolcanic rocks. Close to the latter, the silicate rocks containing carbonate lithotypes prevail, whereas marbles occur at the top of carbonate rocks profiles. 4. Carbonate rocks contain scarce relics of sedimentary structures such as bedding, lamination and sedimentary flows(?). Also calcite relicts of fauna skeletons have been recognized, which points to Palaeozoic age and biogenic origin of the studied rocks.
   The carbonates were likely deposites in shallow marine environment rather remote from continental margin, in the area of active volcanism. 5. Dolomitization of Stronie carbonate rocks was probably of diagenetic type. Three sources of Mg ions and respective dolomitization mechanisms have been distinguished: - neomorphic changes of Mg-calcite biogenic structures; - diagenetic transformations of clay minerals (illite); - migration of solutions with increased contents of Mg-ions. 6. Mineral assemblages of the carbonate rocks point to the metamorhism in the upper (clinopyroxene) and lower amphibolite facies at high fluid pressure of CO2. Minimum temperature of these transformations calculated with calcite-dolomite geothermometer is ca 500°C at assumed P of 5 kbar. Three generations of fluid inclusions found in the carbonates are probably connected: 1) with metamorphism under lower amphibolite facies conditions (maximum at ca.
   530°C), 2) with retrogressive transformations in albite-epidote-amphibolite facies (max. at ca 400-450°C), and 3) with hydrothermal phenomena (max. at ca 210-240°C)
