  • Rock Description

    Previously called a (decomposed dyke), but this specimen is quite dense and hard. Altered from its original composition for sure. The specimen comes from a narrow (5cm) wide dyke and is a slightly darker grey on its margins than in the centre. It contains very small white specks in an even gray, fine grained matrix.
