Foliated basal portion of the recently discovered Tertiary Bura Buri leucogranite (nearly 110 kmq) intruding the Tibetan Sedimentary Sequence in Western Nepal. The foliated portion is composed of a two-mica and tourmaline granite rich in giant muscovite crystals (1-10cm), tourmaline aggregates or giant white K-feldspar crystal.
