Potassic igneous rocks have gained much attention among petrologists worldwide, mainly due to their distinct geochemistry, and many geoscientists still consider them as petrological curiosities with an obscure petrogenesis.

The hardness of Gabbro is 7 whereas its compressive strength is N/mm 2. Streak is the color of rock when it is crushed or powdered. An attempt has been made to correlate the uniaxial compressive strength and Young's modulus of gabbros and basalts with Schmidt hammer rebound number, the point load strength index, Is(50) and the degree of weathering. Sixty three samples of gabbro and thirty of basalt from the ophiolitic comlex of Pindos zone (Northern Greece) have been collected by core drilling and tested .

The rocks are plutonic, formed when molten magma is trapped beneath the Earth's surface and cools into a crystalline mass.

THE GABBROS AND ASSOCIATED ROCKS IN DELAWARE. By FREDERICK D. CHESTER. INTRODUCTION. The following investigation upon the gabbros and their associated rocks in Delaware has occupied my attention for over two years past, and has been treated thus in detail, first, because the massive gabbro is the most prominent formation in the northern part of Cited by: 2.

Gabbro (/ ˈ ɡ æ b r oʊ /) is a phaneritic (coarse-grained), mafic intrusive igneous rock formed from the slow cooling of magnesium-rich and iron-rich magma into a holocrystalline mass deep beneath the Earth's surface.

Slow-cooling, coarse-grained gabbro is chemically equivalent to rapid-cooling, fine-grained of the Earth's oceanic crust is made of gabbro, formed. Gabbro texture (Figs (B) and ) is formed by simultaneous long crystallization of bright (leucocratic) and dark ferromagnesian mineral ingredients, so deeply related to each other, that gabbros are extremely solid and tough s appear as a densely homogeneous rock often fairly the same texture and composition throughout the rock mass.

Gabbro is a coarse-grained and usually dark-colored igneous is an intrusive rock. It means that it formed as magma cooled slowly in the crust. Igneous rocks with similar composition are basalt (extrusive equivalent of gabbro) and diabase (the same rock type could be named dolerite or microgabbro instead).

Gabbro with large augite phenocrysts embedded in white. Gabbro, any of several medium- or coarse-grained rocks that consist primarily of plagioclase feldspar and ially, gabbro is the intrusive (plutonic) equivalent of basalt, but whereas basalt is often remarkably homogeneous in mineralogy and composition, gabbros are exceedingly s are found widely on the Earth and on the Moon as well.

At several places, isotropic gabbros have intruded these rocks and show well defined contacts with amphibolites as well as with actinolite-hornblendites and anorthosites (Fig.

4d and e). Anorthosites are massive, medium to fine grained and occur in association with gabbros and plagiogranites in the western part of MOC.

The color of gabbros is usually dark, dark gray or greenish to black; very rarely reddish. In some varieties in which diallage is the kind of pyroxene present and the grain is moderately coarse the rock is much lighter in tone and of a medium gray or greenish gray.

The same is true in many cases where the rock is more or less altered. Weakly to strongly metamorphosed volcanic rocks.

Protoliths include basalt, andesite, dacite, and rhyolite deposited as lava or tuff, related sedimentary rock, and shallow intrusive rock. These rocks, widely exposed in several belts in central Arizona, include metavolcanic rocks in the Yavapai and Tonto Basin supergroups. ( to Ma).

gabbro Igneous rocks. gabbro Igneous rocks: Gabbro (/ ˈ ɡ æ b r oʊ /) refers to a large group of dark, often phaneritic (coarse-grained), mafic intrusive igneous rocks chemically equivalent to forms when molten magma is trapped beneath the Earth’s surface and slowly cools into a holocrystallinemass.

Felsic rocks are minor in abundance but occur ubiquitously in International Ocean Discovery Program Hole UA, Southwest Indian Ridge. The trace element abundances of high-Ti brown amphibole, plagioclase, and zircon in veins, as well as the presence of myrmekitic texture in the studied felsic rocks support crystallization origin from highly-evolved melts, probably.

The young ages of the samples (ca. – Ma) enable a direct comparison between the plutonic paleointensity and volcanic data. Microscopic observations revealed two kinds of magnetite: needle-shaped exsolution in plagioclase and aggregate associated. of tholeiitic igneous rocks as evidenced by the low ratio of Zr/Ti ( – ) and Nb/Y ( – ) and their plot as basaltic rocks on Zr/Ti –.

grained rock that consists primarily of plagioclase feldspar and pyroxene. Essentially, gabbro is the intrusive (plutonic) equivalent of basalt, but whereas basalt is often remarkably homogeneous in mineralogy and composition, gabbros are exceedingly variable.

Gabbros are found widely on the Earth and on the Moon as well. Rock density is very sensitive to the minerals that compose a particular rock type. Sedimentary rocks (and granite), which are rich in quartz and feldspar, tend to be less dense than volcanic rocks.

And if you know your igneous petrology, you will see that the more mafic (rich in magnesium and iron) a rock is, the greater its density.

Gabbro definition is - a granular igneous rock composed essentially of calcic plagioclase, a ferromagnesian mineral, and accessory minerals.

Gabbro refers to a large group of dark, often phaneritic (coarse-grained), mafic intrusive igneous rocks chemically equivalent to forms when molten magma is trapped beneath the Earth’s surface and slowly cools into a holocrystalline mass.
