Rocks of the granitic suite take an intermediate position between the two and, locally, they are transitional into both end-member types, emphasized in the denomination by supplements such as aplite granite or pegmatitic granite. A similar scenario can be reported for syenitic and, less frequently, for granodioritic through dioritic rocks which are found to be associated in time and space with pegmatites and aplites.

Pegmatites sensu stricto are found as immigrations into environments different from their birthplace where they were trapped in structures providing the accommodation space necessary for their emplacement and sealed off by impervious roof rocks. In principle, granites and pegmatites are two sides of the same coin, both are undergoing mobilization and migration; the granite mirrors diffusion and dissemination, the pegmatite reflects trapping and concentration.

Fractionation and separation can be recognized in the petroleum as well as in the pegmatite—granite systems. While the mineralogy of pegmatites has been intensively studied and also backed by experimental work, the economic or ore geology of these felsic rocks has not been given adequate attention, particularly when it comes to the classification of the pegmatites.

The second string to the bow is the wide range of industrial mineral deposits feldspar, feldspathoids, quartz, alumosilicates—corundum, garnet, mica, graphite, kaolin. Be—Li—Nb pegmatite stock-like and a mineralogical qualifier e. The CMS classification scheme as it stands is purely descriptive and designed for genetic and applied economic geology. In terms of structural geology and geodynamics, pegmatitic deposits primarily occur in ensialic Variscan-type orogens calc-alkaline with a thickened crust and a preponderance of thrusting and nappe stacking.

Both types pertain to the marginal ensimatic settings. Fully-developed ensimatic Andean- and Arc-type settings are devoid of pegmatitic deposits. There are metals in rare element pegmatites that are typical of Variscan-type, such as U, B, P and Sn. Granite pegmatites are ranked second in the abundance of rare elements, mainly Sn and W, whereas metapegmatites and pegmatoids are used to concentrate only feldspar, quartz and mica.

A similar tripartite subdivision as performed for the geodynamic positioning of the host environment can also be done for the emplacement of pegmatites themselves. They are part of the 1 thrustbound and fold-related metamorphogenic deposits, 2 collision and intrusive-related deposits and 3 deposits originated from deep-seated lineamentary remobilization.

With this in mind a direct correlation of pegmatite deposits with non-pegmatitic deposits such as carbonatites or skarn deposits can easily be performed and all physico-chemical processes inherent to these groups of non-pegmatitic deposits can be applied to pegmatitic deposits as well. Based upon this joint chemical—mineralogical—geological approach taken in the classification of pegmatites it becomes evident that pegmatites can no longer be referred to as a simple product of fractionation of a parental granite but have to be placed as an entity of its own hierarchically besides the granite suite.

Pegmatitic rocks cannot be put into a category sharply delimited from the adjacent ones. In nature they are often transitional from simple pegmatoids in migmatites to complex pegmatites sensu stricto. They are characterized by a polyphase development with their formation guided by structures, controlled by open access to crustal and subcrustal heat and element sources.

Since pegmatites and aplites used to be smaller in size than granites, a more consequent concentration of elements accompanied by a more intensive interaction with their country rocks takes place during their emplacement than in granites skarn, episyenites, and albitites. Considering the economic part of pegmatites, the primary pegmatite deposits and their clastic aprons with placer deposits from residual to fluvial type will be left unchallenged as far as the exploitation of colored gemstones is concerned, because there is no other choice.

The hard rock deposits will still have a say when the requirements for the raw material are very strict ultra-high quartz or a shortage of electronic and strategic elements is looming Ta, Nb, Be. Exploitation of industrial minerals from hardrocks is competitive if no easy-to access deposits near-surface sedimentary deposits of similar quality are close-by and the labor costs are moderate in the country of production. Low-grade large tonnage deposits salars, brines are a challenge particularly for lithium.

The pegmatites will maintain their position as a source for those elements which make up the lion share in the mineral association, quartz and feldspar. Pegmatites fueled from subcrustal sources, and related in time and space with reactive country rocks ultrabasic, basic igneous rocks and carbonate rocks have not yet been given the attention they might deserve.
