Abstract: This thesis reports on a research into the progressive development of fibrous aggregates, e.g. calcite, quartz and mica crystals in veins and strain fringes. The study is based on microstructural analysis of natural examples and on computer experiments. Investigation of fibrous looking elongate crystals in striped bedding-veins from the Orobic Alps, Italy indicate that these crystals do not track the opening trajectory of the veins but are oriented at an angle of up to 80° to the opening direction. Microstructural analysis of quartz, calcite and chlorite fibres in antitaxial strain fringes indicate that most strain fringes contain complex intergrowth of tracking (displacement-controlled) and non-tracking (face-controlled) fibres. To explain these growth features the computer program
