 >View Microscope
Fact sheet
Description: 

This sample is a coarse grained two pyroxene gabbro. Minerals present are plagioclase (labradorite), orthopyroxene, augite and accessory opaques. Note the rectangular outlines of plagioclase - an igneous texture, which is quite different from the metamorphic 'granoblastic' texture in the two pyroxene granulite which is made from the same three minerals as the gabbro
