Not illustrated. 1905 Excerpt: ... with accessory quartz, biotite, hornblende, magnetite, apatite, titanite, pyrite. pyrrhotite, garnet, and orthoclase. Exclusively decomposition minerals are actinolite, chlorite, and serpentine. Quartz is very variable in amount, ranging from 0 to 30 per cent. The pyroxenic constituent may be exclusively hypersthene, chiefly hypersthene, or less frequently, chiefly augite or exclusively augite or diallage. It constitutes from 10 to 40 per cent of the rock. The plagioclastic constituent is labradorite or labradorite-bytownite and varies from 5 to 50 per cent of the rock. Between the pyroxene, whether hypersthene or augite, and the labradorite there occur reactionary peripheral bands of garnets. Between the garnets and the pyroxene there is a narrow zone of quartz and hornblende. Hypersthene and the anorthite molecule will produce hornblende, quartz, and common garnet (an isomorphous mixture of grossular, almadine, and pyrope). In the case of the monoclinic pyroxene the feldspar molecule is not needed and lime is liberated. These garnet rims are the most striking petrographic features of the gabbro (see plates 57, 58, and 59). Wherever the gabbro has been subjected to pressure, as along the periphery of the intrusive mass, pyroxene is replaced, chiefly by green hornblende and subordinately by biotite. Such a margin of hornblendegabbro is so marked a feature of the Cecil County gabbro mass that it can je mapped as a separate formation. A more or less schistose structure accompanies the development of these two minerals. Along the contacts hornblende also accompanies biotite as a constituent of the gneiss. This contact phenomenon increases the difficulty of separating the two formations. The gabbro is associated with and, through decrease in feldspar, grades i...
