Text Description:
Olivine basalt that is a porphyritic dense medium-gray (N 5) slightly vesicular rock, with intergranular texture. The phenocrysts consist of plagioclase, which averages about An85 (as determined by the average index of refraction); olivine (Fa32 as determined by the mean index of refraction), about 6 percent of the rock and ranging in length from 0.1 to 1 mm; and sparse augite, ranging from 0.1 to 0.25 mm. The groundmass is chiefly plagioclase, averaging An57; augite granules that are apparently pigeonitic, as shown by a 2V of 35o; magnetite; and intersertal brown glass, charged with minute magnetite granules.
