Amphiboles are one of the major minerals in metabasic rocks in greenshist to upper amphibolite facies. Amphiboles have variable chemical composition, therefore, various elements with different ionic charge and radius can intering into their structure that occupy special mineralogical sites. There are some elements in amphiboles which are sensitive to the changes of pressure and temperature. The important elements from this points of veiws are Al, Na, Ti and Ca. Once that pressure and temperature of metamorphism is determined, the type of metamorphism can be distinguished. On this basis, we studied metabasic rocks of north and northwest of khoy township in north-west (NW) Iran. Geothermobarometry estimation indicates that amphiboles have crystallized at temperatures between 550OC and 680OC and pressures between 4.5 and 7 kbars. Therefore, metamorphism in the Khoy area was low to medium grade.
