On the northern frame of Mórágy crystalline mass near Ófalu village a detailed penological investigation was carried out in the Lower Paleozoic sequence. It is named Ófalu Phyllitoid Group dividing into three formations and seven members of alternating eugeosynclinal volcanic and sedimentary association affected a fairly low grade Abukuma type regional metamorphism produced greenschist as well as greenschist-amphibolite transition fades. The volcanism is represented by andesitic-basalt rocks with associated tuffaceous derivatives and albite-porphyry as well as serpentinized ultramafic sill-like body intruded the geosynclinal complex. According to comparative petrochemical examinations the andesitic-basalt rocks derived from oceanic type tholeiitic volcanism.
