SAMPLE INFO : 54-D-65
Sample ID:54-D-65
Station ID:54-D-65
Latitude:53.958
Longitude:-166.631
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1954-01-01
Sample Type 1:Lava
Sample Type 2:Flow
Field Lithology:Basalt
Text Description:
Olivine basalt porphyry from an Eider Point basalt flow three fourths mile southwest of Wide Bay Cone. It is medium gray and vuggy, and contains pyroxene and olivine phenocrysts 1-4 millimeters long. Phenocrysts compose 20 percent of the rock: 10 percent sodic bytownite, which forms euhedral laths, stubby crystals, and fragments, and which has normal zones, rare oscillatory zones, zones of dusty inclusions, and apatite inclusions; 5 percent augite(?), which forms euhedral to anhedral grains and embayed crystals, and which is faintly zoned; and 5 percent olivine, which forms subhedral to anhedral crystals and embayed crystals. The groundmass has an intergranular texture and consists of abundant stubby subhedral calcic andesine, much granular clinopyroxene and a black opaque mineral, and traces of olivine and tridymite.
