In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Instead there was just a headstone of black basalt.
- Further up section the geology is dominated by a succession of unmetamorphosed but strongly fractured and veined blocky andesites, basalts and tuffaceous rocks.
- Further, it is a common vesicle-filling mineral in basalts.
- It seems unlikely that the final magma pressure would have been the maximum value of magma pressure reached during the intrusive episode, and so flood basalts probably were erupted.
- When wet, the basalt changes colour from silvery grey to gleaming black.
- There are rare dykes with compositions similar to ocean-island basalts.
- Oceanic sediments on top of the basalts crop out on the northern margin of the ophiolite.
- On one face of the stone, a tablet of extremely hard black basalt, there is a long trilingual inscription; the three texts begin written one above other.
- Calcite is one of the frequently occurring minerals in cavities within the basalts of the Deccan trap rocks of Maharashtra State, India.
- These are invariably volcanic rocks, including rhyolites, andesites, basalts, and their explosive equivalents, pyroclastic rocks.
- Thick sequences of basalts form the Morgedal and Gjuve formations and include series of sub-aerial lava flows.
- Gjuve basalts are generally more primitive and have a greater range of major element compositions than the Morgedal basalts.
- The Zeederbergs basalts are dominantly tholeiitic and compositionally akin to continental flood basalts.
- This implies that individual primitive magmas are more likely to represent the composition of their individual mantle sources than more fractionated basalts.
- At ground level, a bistro and book shop have been elbowed aside to create a senselessly spacious foyer, floored in black basalt.
- Some areas of this lava formation are highly mineralized, whereas other equally large areas are hard, solid black basalt without any minerals.
- Some are made up of dense, black, homogeneous basalt, with no visible mineral grains.
- In this interpretation, the Basic Complex consists of basalts, pillowed in places, and derived volcaniclastic rock together with background mudrock.
- With walls of black basalt and ice rising 300 metres on each side of the narrow channel, this impression - of cruising through a high mountain valley - is not far from the truth.
- Further east is Diyarbakir, a sultry place, where groups of Kurds lurk on the street corners and the black basalt of the walls and the cobbles fill the alleys with its funereal tones.
