S-C Fabric in Mylonite

Thin section of mylonitic rock containing an S-C fabric from a ductile shear zone. The C-surfaces are shear surfaces whereas the S-surfaces are foliations. The manner in which the S-surfaces are dragged into the C-surfaces indicate top the right sense of shear. Image from website: http://www.earth.monash.edu.au/Teaching/mscourse/index.html
