Phenocryst fragments in rhyolitic lavas and lava domes ...

Aug 20, 2003  Phenocrysts within pumice clasts of the Ongatiti Ignimbrite are noticeably different from those in the lava, lava dome and block and ash flow samples. The feldspar and quartz phenocrysts are intensely fractured and fragments are separated by void spaces that range from a few microns to hundreds of microns across ( Fig. 6c,d ).

In the present paper, some exmaples of banded pumice from Komagatake, Tarumai and Daisetsu, active volcanoes in Hokkaido are introduced. There is no marked difference in petrography between pumice and scoria of augite-hypersthene andesite except for occurrence of some hornblende phenocrysts in the pumice of Daisetsu.

Debra May Cannon for the degree of Science in the Department

vesiculation probably caused the formation of banded pumice. This hypothesis is based on the following relationships: 1) phenocrysts and bulk chemistry of rhyolite and andesitic pumices are of distinct compositions, 2) a paucity of phenocrysts occur in the andesitic pumices, and 3) Harker diagrams of major element chemistries show that the two ...

The second and third types constitute centimetric to decimetric brown layers in banded pumice and frequently are in contact with each other (Fig. 2d–g). On the basis of crystal size, we refer to ...

The black pumice is medium-K, hi-Ti and -Fe andesite that contains labradorite (An 60-65), olivine (Fo82), augite, hypersthene, and magnetite. The percentage of black pumice increases upward in the upper flow. Banded pumice is a combination of rhyolite and andesite magmas and represents the coeruption of these two compositions.

The core composition of plagioclase phenocrysts of these scoria and pumice shows a same bimodal distribution of low-An plagioclase (An=59) and high-An plagioclase (An>70). These indicate that heterogeneous ejecta such as banded pumice were exactly mingling products of both mixed mafic and felsic magmas, which were derived from continuous magma ...

Phenocryst - Wikipedia

A phenocryst is an early forming, relatively large and usually conspicuous crystal distinctly larger than the grains of the rock groundmass of an igneous rock. Such rocks that have a distinct difference in the size of the crystals are called porphyries, and the adjective porphyritic is used to describe them. Phenocrysts often have euhedral forms, either due to early growth within a magma, or ...

Pictures and Descriptions of Igneous Rock Types

Jun 03, 2019  Pumice is easily crushed and used for abrasive grit or soil amendments. Pumice is much like scoria in that both are frothy, lightweight volcanic rocks, but the bubbles in pumice are small and regular and its composition is more felsic. Also, pumice is generally glassy, whereas scoria is a more typical volcanic rock with microscopic crystals.

The eruptive products were mainly phenocryst-rich (28 vol%) andesitic pumice (SiO2 57 wt%) with a small amount of more silicic pumice (SiO2 62–63 wt%) and banded pumice. These pumices were formed by mixing of low-temperature mushy silicic magma (dacite) and high-temperature mafic magma (basalt or basaltic andesite).

Phenocryst Porphyritic Textures Science Trends

Aug 15, 2017  A phenocryst is a large crystal that visually stands out compared to the rest of the minerals. Phenocrysts are found in porphyritic textures where large grains are visible in volcanic extrusive rocks.

In the gray pumice and gray part of the banded pumice, the rims of some phenocrysts have higher x-usp and Mg/Mn. The cores of the microphenocrysts seem to have crystallized simultaneously with the outer zones of the phenocrysts. For example, zoned margins (rim and near rim) of phenocrysts chemically resemble the cores of the microphenocrysts. ...
