Therefore, an anticlockwise P-T path characterized by simultaneous temperature-decreasing and pressure-increasing was inferred for the Yushugou HP mafic granulite.Studies of zircon morphology and inclusions, combined with zircon U-Pb dating and REE geochemistry indicate that their protolith’s ages of the mafic granulites were ∼430 Ma, while the metamorphism could occur at three stages with ages of ∼390 Ma, ∼340 Ma and ∼320 Ma, which may correspond to Stage I, II and III, respectively.
Petrographic observations and phase equilibrium modeling using THERMOCALC in the NCFMASHTO system for the mafic granulites (Y21-2 and Y18-8) show three stages of metamorphism: Stage I (granulite facies) was recognized by the large porphyroblastic garnet core, with P-T conditions of 9.8–10.4 Kbar and 860–900 °C (Y21-2) and 9.9–10.6 Kbar and 875–890 °C (Y18-8), respectively; Stage II (HP granulite facies) has peak P-T conditions of 12.1 Kbar at 755 °C (Y21-2) and 13.8 Kbar at 815 °C (Y18-8) using mineral assemblages combining with garnet rim compositions with maximum grossular and minimum pyrope contents; Stage III (amphibolite facies) was characterized by the development of calcic amphibole in granulites with temperature of 446–563 °C.

, you know what I’m talking about (and if you liked that article, you should probably grab Geoff’s book).
Essentially, you can turn yourself into someone the bad people just don’t want to mess with.
