The finely crystalline equivalent of gabbro is basalt, which occurs as lava. It has the same black appearance 33 33 ‘Crystal Black’ porphyritic dolerite (China) chiefly comprising phenocrysts of augite (pink/yellow/blue) set in a groundmass of plagioclase (labradorite composition) feldspar (grey/black), with minor olivine (green/brown); XPT, ×35. 35 35 ‘Royal Green’ dolerite (China) that exhibits alteration of ferromagnesian minerals to chlorite (green); PPT, ×35. and is used locally for masonry and hard landscaping.

Figure 44 shows a calcareous sandstone with calcite cement. This sandstone is pink in hand specimen due the presence of red iron 41 ‘Northowram’ quartzitic sandstone (Halifax, England) consisting mainly of quartz grains (grey/white/black) with traces of muscovite mica (elongated, brightly coloured) and clay minerals (brown); XPT, ×150. 42 42 Nubian sandstone (Egypt) consisting of quartz grains (white) and clay minerals (brown). Macropores are shown (yellow); PPT, ×35. 43 43 ‘Blue Pennant’ sandstone (Wales) consisting of quartz grains (grey/black) with a matrix of clay minerals (bright) and carbonaceous matter (brown); XPT, ×150.
