Sample ID:P49Se6
Station ID:P49Se6
Date Sampled:1949-01-01
Sample Type 1:Lava
Sample Type 2:Flow
Text Description:
P49Se6 is from a very recent flow on the eastern shore (142,200' E., 269,550' N.), which Powers considered younger than the most recent eustatic bench, and which is unmantled by ash. Powers estimated the thickness at more than 20 feet, and notes that there was much copper staining. It is a
dense medium-gray rock with conspicuous green augite phenocrysts. It is seriate, with an intergranular texture. The principal constituents are bytownite (An72), augite (Di70He38), and olivine (Fa35) as much as 1 mm in diameter, in part forming clots of small prisms, and magnetite. The groundmass augite is pleochroic from pale brown to pale green, has a 2V of 20, and hence is rather pigeonitic. The augite phenocrysts also have thin pigeonitic outer zones.
