Igneous Rocks Formation Texture and Composition Geology

Igneous Rocks Formation Texture and Composition Geology

The mineral composition and colour of rocks are related to their chemical composition When the chemical analysis of an acid rock like granite and of a basic rock like basalt are compared important differences are seen such as the greater proportion of silica and alkalies Na 2 O and K 2 O in the acid rock and the higher content of lime
