Rock type of the area:

The Buddibanda hill and other granite occurring areas are forms part of the Eastern Ghat formations of Archaean age, where the leptynites (garnetiferous granite) occur as metamorphic product of the pre-existing iron rich quartzo-fedspathic sediments.

Geological set up of the area:

The Buddibanda hill and other granite areas in Visakhapatnam district comprised of leptynites (garnetiferous feldspathic gneisses) and these are divided into two types of leptynites (i) creamy leptynites (ii) gray leptynites. They occur as parallel formations with a sharp transition zone at the contact. They are tending N 75 Deg West and dipping 45 Deg towards North East. The rock formation show impregnations of garnets of varied sizes, ranging from 0.1 cm to 1.0 cm. The garnets are aligned parallel to the banding / bedding plane, in the form of wavy streaks in the both type of leptynites. The dispersion of garnet crystals enhances the esthetic look. Besides this, the wavy banding of major minerals like quartz and feldspar are also an added attraction, which further enhance the beauty and esthetic look of the deposit. The banded nature of the formation is mainly due to the mineral lineation. As such it gives different appearance, if we cut the blocks in different directions. The creamy leptynites comprised of quartz, feldspar and sillimanite. As such it is creamy white in colour with impregnations of garnet in the form of wavy streaks parallel to the gneissic structure of the rock.
