Photo on left is from a thin section of a coarse grained granite taken with crossed is a classical example of an alkali granite, viz. where the feldspars are mainly potassic consisting of orthoclase and microcline. The granite was found on the beach near the ferry terminal of North Uist, grid ref. NF It is probably a glacial erratic.

Garnet biotite granite and biotite gr anite range from hypidiomorphic to allotriomorphic granular (Fig. 2D). Quar tz (50–26%) is anhedral with sweeping extinction and rectilinear subgrains. Plagioclase (44–33%) is anhedral and blocky, with uniform extinction. Plagioclase . The 26 younger granite plutons and masses possess field relations, petrographical and chemical characters which lead to their subdivision into three different groups; each has its own field, petrographic and geochemical characteristics. These three groups include: Group (1) less differentiated calc-alkaline to weakly alkaline granodiorite and.

the Grimstad granite is a funnel shaped body and extends about 2 km below its present surface. It is separated from the nearby Herefoss granite by a 10 km wide band of Precambrian gneisses.

Dartmoor, in SW England, is a classic periglaciated granite upland adorned with a population of over tors. The origin of the tors has been controversial, but their emergence by differentiation.

Meanwhile, structural geology was essentially geometrical and mechanistic. In the early 70's, the structural approach began to widen to include solid state physics and fluid dynamics.

Geologists tend to overlook ornamental stone, but all of geology can be there - sometimes at its most challenging. Perhaps our difficulty is that we see so much in a polished stone, yet often have no idea where the stone is from.
