Here we investigate the Konkanhundi Geochemistry gabbro-anorthosite suite from Peninsular India, adjacent to the major collisional suture between the Western and Zircon U-Pb geochronology and Lu-Hf isotopes Eastern Dharwar cratonic blocks. The anorthosites display high Al O contents with negative correlation against 2 3 Archean plate tectonics MgO, high CaO and Sr contents, and positive Eu anomalies indicating plagioclase ﬂotation in the magma Dharwar Craton
