SAMPLE INFO : 54-B-11
Sample ID:54-B-11
Station ID:54-B-11
Latitude:53.88707
Longitude:-166.93202
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1954-01-01
Sample Type 1:Lava
Sample Type 2:Dike
Field Lithology:Andesite
Text Description:
Andesite porphyry from a dike in the Unalaska formation along the south shore of Kalekta Bay. It is light bluish gray to medium gray and has phenocrysts 1 to 3 millimeters long. Phenocrysts compose 20 percent of the rock: 19 percent sodic labradorite to sodic andesine, which forms embayed crystals and subhedral laths and which is zoned normally; a trace of clinopyroxene, which alters to uralite(?) and chlorite; and a trace of pyrite, which forms subhedra associated with clinopyroxene. The groundmass, which has a felty and intersertal texture, consists of abundant subhedral laths of sodic andesine, and also a trace of subhedral clinopyroxene and a granular black opaque mineral. Alteration is moderate: chlorite and uralite(?) are common, and calcite forms disseminated crystals and veinlets.
