Text Description:
Sample from breadcrusted block in young b&a flow. Finely vesicular plag, cpx. Plag ~0.5 mm equant - perhaps like Pakushin (snowflake, arenal). Flow contains these bread-crusted blocks and radially fractured blocks. Blocks to 2 meters. Flow also contains older reddishly-altered rounded to angular blocks. These older blocks NOT breadcrusted or rad frac. B&a appears channel fill in older previously altered debris avalanche material.

General Mineralogy Description:
Finely vesicular plag, cpx. Plag ~0.5 mm equant - perhaps like Pakushin (snowflake, arenal).
