SAMPLE INFO : 54-D-44
Sample ID:54-D-44
Station ID:54-D-44
Latitude:53.879
Longitude:-166.762
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1954-01-01
Sample Type 1:Lava
Field Lithology:Andesite
Text Description:
Andesite porphyry from the Makushin volcanics 3 miles southeast of Sugarloaf Cone. It is medium gray to purplish gray and contains plagioclase and pyroxene phenocrysts 1-4 millimeters long. Phenocrysts compose 20 percent of the rock: 12 percent andesine to bytownite, which forms euhedral laths and fragments, and which has normal and oscillatory zones, zones of dusty inclusions, and apatite inclusions; 5 percent augite(?), which forms euhedral to anhedral grains, crystal clusters, and reaction rims around hypersthene; 2 percent subhedral hypersthene with reaction rims; a trace of anhedral olivine(?); a trace of subhedral to anhedral magnetite; and a trace of euhedral apatite. The groundmass has a felty to flow texture and includes abundant subhedral andesine laths, much augite(?), and a trace of a granular black opaque mineral.
