Deformed marbles containing green metachert layers which are transected by multiple stylolites during oblique collision in the Zagros orogenic belt. Subhorizontal sylolites are overpinted by steep ones. It is unclear whether the displacement of layer fragments is solely due to dissolution on stylolites or if it is due to displacement in domino boudinage, with subsequent lateral shortening.
