Spherulitic rhyolites crop out on the northern and eastern coasts but differ markedly on each coast. On the north coast, the Bouley Rhyolite Formation crops out in Giffard Bay and consists of the Gifford Spherulitic rhyolites of Jersey book overlain by the Giffard Andesite, Ignimbrite and Tuffs and finally by Les Platons Rhyolite.

Occasionally small sphernlites are developed, but the greater part of the series are not markedly spherulitic. For the main part these rhyolites, like the basal flows, are inclined by: 1.

Based on the distinctive textural and chemical character of highly spherulitic rhyolites in the Late Archean, volcanogenic massive sulfide-rich, Blake River Group of Quebec, it is proposed that they represent key beds which may be used to infer the age relationships between the three subgroups (Rouyn-Pelletier, Misema, and Noranda) into which the Blake River Group is divided in this by: Grenvitte A.

Cole. In contrast, other spherulitic rhyolites are characterized by scattering of isolated spherulites in perlitic-fractured glass and are classified as spherulitic rhyolites II. Such rhyolites have effective porosities (n = 10) of –% (mean value = %) and display good connectivity of the pore network.

There is no continuum between. Spherulitic. Composed of spheres or ellipses of radiating, fibrous crystals of quartz and orthoclase in a glassy or very finely crystalline felsitic matrix due to devitrification of quenched glassy igneous rocks (see Rhyolites and Mourant ().

In this contribution, the microstructure and related porosity of oil-bearing rhyolitic lavas from the Hailar Basin (NE China) were investigated using a combination of optical microscopy, fluorescence image analysis, and scanning.

A geological survey of Jersey was carried out between andunder a Natural Environment Research Council research contract, by staff of Queen Mary College, University of London, on behalf of the Institute of Geological Sciences (now the British Geological Survey) and the States of Jersey (Island Development Committee).

The Jersey Geology Trail is fascinating, with Precambrian to Lower Palaeozoic rock types varying from shales and sandstones, through andesites and minor basalts, flow-banded and spherulitic rhyolites and ignimbrites to flash-flood conglomerates.

These are all folded and intruded by a variety of gabbros, diorites, and various striking pink. Engineering Geology, 28 () Elsevier Science Publishers B.V., Amsterdam - Printed in The Netherlands Technical Note Fabric Controls on Bulk Strength Properties of Some Rhyolites R.J. STEVENSON and A.P.W.

HODDER Earth Sciences, University of Waikato, Hamilton (New Zealand) (Received Novem ; accepted after revision Ma ). The rhyolites of all volcanic rocks preeminently show lamination produced by flowing, a fact which is doubtless due to their being so siliceous.

This structure and their devitrification enables us to trace a direct connection between the rhyolites and felsites, which are simply the older and more altered rhyolites One of the best illustrations.

Jersey Geology Trail: Geological History. Jersey is a small island, 15km (9 miles) east to west and 8km (5 miles) north to south, situated in the Bay of St.

Malo, c. 25km (15miles) west of Normandy and c. 50km (30miles) north of Brittany and is a window into Precambrian, Lower Palaeozoic and Quaternary geological environments. The other islands, reefs and stacks are similarly small and. Agate—a spectacular form of SiO2 and a famous gemstone—is commonly characterized as banded chalcedony.

In detail, chalcedony layers in agates can be intergrown or intercalated with macrocrystalline quartz, quartzine, opal-A, opal-CT, cristobalite and/or moganite.

In addition, agates often contain considerable amounts of mineral inclusions and water as both interstitial. The spherulitic rhyolites are composed mainly of spherulites of devitrified volcanic glass and some phenocrysts of corroded quartz and feldspar. The crystalline rhyolites consist of phenocrysts of sanidine, plagioclase of andesine-labradorite composition, and quartz plus minor biotite in a microlitic groundmass.

Peraluminous (P.I.1) rhyolites from SE Lake Chad consisted of quartz, alkali feldspar and oxides–hydroxides phenocrysts, dis.

Petrographic investigations defined some different rock types in south of the complex represented by alkaline volcanics (pyroclastics [rhyolitic crystal tuffs], spherulitic rhyolites, alkaline rhyolite dykes), sub-volcanic peralkaline granites and structurally controlled.

A few names given rhyolites that have been used as gemrocks follow: Birdseye - name given to some spherulitic rhyolites. Elixerite - local name for rhyolite wonderstone from the vicinity of Truth or Consequences, Sierra County, New Mexico.

Spherulitic rhyolites from both Jefferson and Berlin, NH, have been utilized for stone tools of the Paleoindian period. The nature of the materials from both of these sources has recently been reported upon by Pollock, Hamilton and Boisvert (a, b).

The purpose of this article is to discuss spherulitic rhyolite at Berlin, New Hampshire. For geographers and geologists, we hardly need to spell out Jersey's Precambrian to Lower Palaeozoic rock types varying from shales and sandstones, through to andesites and minor basalts, flow-banded and spherulitic rhyolites, but now is your chance to study them in situ.

coastline, Jersey really is a Geographer’s and Geologer’sdream. Of course we don’tneed to spell out Jersey’s Precambrian to Lower Palaeozoic rock types varying from shales and sandstones, through to andesites and minor basalts, flow-banded and spherulitic rhyolites.

Petrographic investigations defined some different rock types in south of the complex represented by alkaline volcanics (pyroclastics [rhyolitic crystal tuffs], spherulitic rhyolites, alkaline rhyolite dykes), sub-volcanic peralkaline granites and structurally controlled mylonitic volcanoclastics.

Perlitic lavas are characterized by the occurrence of numerous perlitic fractures which can also be produced in the glassy groundmass of other lavas. Spherulitic rhyolites mainly consist of small-sized (1 mm) isolated spherulites. Clustered spherulites are characterized by the development of interspherulite pores.
