Chloritoid and biotite have crystallographically similar zoning patterns wherein the non-{001} sectors are heavily included and {001} sectors are clear or poorly included, but zoning in chloritoid can develop in the absence or presence of strain whereas zoning in biotite requires a strain field characterized by shortening at a high angle to foliation and growth of a crystal with {001} oriented at a high angle to foliation.
