SAMPLE INFO : 54-F-53
Sample ID:54-F-53
Station ID:54-F-53
Latitude:53.847
Longitude:-166.965
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1954-01-01
Sample Type 1:Lava
Field Lithology:Basalt
Text Description:
Olivine-bearing feldspathic basalt porphyry from Makushin volcanics, 1 mile northeast of Pakushin Cone. It is pale purple to grayish purple and contains plagioclase, pyroxene, and olivine phenocrysts 1-4 millimeters long. Phenocrysts compose 25 percent of the rock: 15 percent sodic labradorite, which forms euhedral stubby crystals and fragments, and which contains faint oscillatory and normal zones, zones of dusty inclusions. And apatite inclusions; 6 percent euhedral to subhedral augite (?); 2 percent hypersthene with thin augite(?) reaction rims; 2 percent euhedral to anhedral olivine; and 1 percent subhedral magnetite(?), with some myrmekitic intergrowth in augite(?). The groundmass has a felty to intergranular texture and consists of sodic labradorite, abundant subhedral laths and stubby crystals of much granular augite (?), a black opaque mineral, and a trace of granular olivine.
