Interlocking microcrystalline calcite crystals and microspar with veinlets of hematite. (Angular fragments of turbid, fine-grained, distinctly layered limestone are cemented and veined by clear, much coarser grained calcite. The limestone pieces contain uniformly fine-grained calcite, veinlets and patches of hematite, small aggregates of chalcedony, grains of sand and silt-sized quartz and disseminated shreds of opaque carbonaceous debris. Some pieces are so fine-grained that they approach the texture of lithographic limestone.)
Chalcedonic quartz forms pseudomorphs after carbonate oolites. Both concentric and radial internal structures are preserved. Where and oolite is sectioned centrally the sandgrain nucleus appears. Both the oolites and scattered quartz sand grains are set in a matrix of fine-grained chalcedony.
A uniformly fine-grained parallel-oriented aggregate of angular quartz grains, feldspar fragments, chlorite flakes, sericite flakes and shreds, aggregates of submicroscopic clay minerals (chiefly kaolinite), and carbonaceous shreds. Accessory detrital species recognizable are biotite, apatite, zircon, epidote, and tourmaline.
A very fine-grained brownish-gray aggregate of chalcedonic quartz, scattered specks and aggregates of slightly coarser quartz and irregular stringers and blebs of translucent to opaque organic material. Local patches and grains of fossiliferous calcite appear.
Microscopically mainly cryptocrystalline and merely translucent in shades of gray-brown. Subordinate silty quartz grains, feldspar pieces, sericite flakes, calcite rhombs, and a few particles of pyrite, zircon, magnetite and leucoxene. The dark matrix is composed mainly of illitic clay material.
This sample is a strongly mylonitized pelitic schist with a continuous schistoscity defined by strongly alligned biotite, fibrous sillimanite, and opaques and interspersed with discontinuous quartz and k-feldspar ribbons. K-feldspar is strongly sericitized. The sense of shear is ambiguous.
This two-pyroxene, hornblende-bearing gabbro is highly fractured and has a much finer-grained population of pyroxenes growing in the interstices between larger pyroxene grains. A thin band of finer-grained pyroxne and plagioclase cross-cuts the sample.
The flame lamellae that pervade this thin section are cut thicker than ususal and thus display first order yellows and oranges, though the tartan twinning of the microcline retains the ususal first order grey birefringence. Grain boundaries between feldspars are lined with smaller feldspar grains, which gives the larger grains a scalloped appearance. The hornblende grains are highly irregular in shape and contain many inclusions of feldspar, opaques, biotite, and other unidentifiable phases.
Grain shapes in this thin section are consistantly anhedral. Weathering of the feldspars give them a dusty appearance. Because the thin section is cut too thick, the birefringence of quartz and some k-feldspars is as high as second order blues. Mnay hornblende crystals are nearly opaque and they are frequently found surrounding and likely replacing inclusions of pyroxene (perhaps). The biotite and hornblende are rather skeletal. Euhedral sphene and apatite are occasionally scattered throughout.
This sample has a granoblastic texture defined by feldspars, garnet, and pyroxene. Crystals of all phases are roughly equant in shape. Alteration is concentrated along the rare hornblende grains and more commonly throughout the pyroxenes. Calcite and apatite are accessory phases and chlorite is found as an alteration product.
This generally allotriomprhic-equigranular thin section is thicker than standar thin sections, thus the quartz and some k-feldspar grains display first order red to pink colors. The riebeckite is nearly opaque in both plane and cross-polarized light.
