SAMPLE INFO : 46AC21
Sample ID:46AC21
Station ID:46AC21
Latitude:51.9898
Longitude:-176.58705
Datum:NAD83
Date Sampled:1946-01-01
Sample Type 1:Lava
Sample Type 2:Dome
Field Lithology:Basalt
Text Description:
Basalt. A light brownish-gray (5YR 5/1) rock, with seriate texture and numerous flattish, irregular vesicles. The larger plagioclase crystals, ranging in size from 4 to 0.1 mm, have a median composition of about An80. The dark-green salite has a maximum size of about 3 mm with a maximum index of 1.690, suggesting a composition near Ca50Mg30Fe20. Small amounts of "basaltic" hornblende, pleochroic in red-brown and yellow colors and with wide resorption borders of magnetite, are also present. The groundmass consists of plagioclase laths, rods of augite, granules of magnetite or ilmenite, and interstitial glass in small amount. Small prisms of apatite and irregular grains of magnetite or ilmenite are the principal accessory minerals.
