the following is a list of rock types recognized by geologists. there is no agreed number of specific types of rocks. any unique combination of chemical composition, mineralogy, grain size, mugearite oligoclase-bearing basalt, comprising olivine, apatite, and opaque oxides; shoshonite a potassium-rich variety of
the texture of an igneous rock depends on the size of the crystals in the rock. an example of a mafic rock is basalt, the black rock that forms from lava flows in
these data suggest that conventional analyses of crystal size distributions of igneous rocks may be in error—the slope of the csd cannot be interpreted in terms of
basalt is a common extrusive volcanic rock, which is usually grey to black and fine-grained due to the structure is usually fine grain to cryptocrystalline or vitreous and is sometimes medium grained. sign in to download full-size image. fig.

the difference between the two rock types is their grain size. basalts are extrusive igneous rocks that cool quickly and have fine-grained crystals. gabbros are

basalt and granite actually have quite a bit in common. both are igneous rocks, which means that they cooled from a magma (the earth gets very hot just below the
