Trondhjemite
A tonalite with color index (M) less than 15; composed essentially of sodic plagioclase, quartz, sparse biotite, and little or no alkali feldspar
Subtopics:
(none)

Alabama - Arizona - California - Idaho - Massachusetts - New Hampshire - Oregon - South Carolina - Virginia - Washington
Alabama
Almond Trondhjemite (Precambrian to Paleozoic)
Almond Trondhjemite - leucocratic, fine to medium-grained, locally foliated trondhjemite containing abundant muscovite and locally biotite and epidote.
Bluff Springs Granite (Precambrian to Paleozoic)
Bluff Springs Granite - leucocratic quartz diorite (tonalite) to quartz monzonite or trondhjemite, locally foliated.
Rockford Granite (Precambrian to Paleozoic)
Rockford Granite - leucocratic granite, granodiorite, and trondhjemite; locally well foliated, numerous pegmatites. Includes unnamed granitoids in Chilton County.
Arizona
Early Proterozoic granitic rocks (Early Proterozoic)
Wide variety of granitic rocks, including granite, granodiorite, tonalite, quartz diorite, diorite, and gabbro. These rocks commonly are characterized by steep, northeast-striking foliation. (1600-1800 Ma)
California
Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 3 (Sierra Nevada, Death Valley area, Northern Mojave Desert and Transverse Ranges) (Permian to Tertiary; most Mesozoic)
Mesozoic granite, quartz monzonite, granodiorite, and quartz diorite
Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 4 (Klamath Mountains and Northern Sierra Nevada) (Devonian)
Mesozoic granite, quartz monzonite, granodiorite, and quartz diorite
Mesozoic granitic rocks, unit 5 (Klamath Mountains) (Jurassic to early Cretaceous)
Mesozoic granite, quartz monzonite, granodiorite, and quartz diorite
Idaho
Intermediate intrusions; mostly Late Cretaceous dioritic to granodioritic plutons of the Idaho batholithic assemblage (Cretaceous)
Cretaceous plutons; intermediate; as granodiorite or diorite; probably includes unmapped older and younger crystalline bodies.
Intrusive rocks: mostly Late Cretaceous granodioritic to granitic plutons of the Idaho batholithic assemblage, but including some Eocene intrusions; northern Idaho and Atlanta batholith (Cretaceous to Eocene)
Cretaceous plutons; probably includes unmapped older and younger crystalline bodies.
Quartz diorite, metasedimentary rock, metavolcanic rock, and migmatite; Cretaceous to Jurassic plutons in Triassic to Permian metamorphic host rocks, undivided; western Idaho (Cretaceous to Permian)
Mixed, highly altered and migmatitic rocks; derived from imbrication and dynamic events
Quartz diorite, tonalite, granodiorite, orthogneiss, migmatite; Cretaceous to Jurassic quartz dioritic plutons; western Idaho, Blue Mountains island-arc complex (Early Cretaceous to Late Jurassic)
Lower Cretaceous to Upper Jurassic intrusions in west-central Idaho.
Massachusetts

Trondhjemite and abundant pegmatite - Gray and fine-grained; possibly belonging to the Sebago batholith.
Trondhjemite and quartz diorite in northern Jefferson dome in Gorham quadrangle (Late Ordovician)
Trondhjemite and quartz diorite in northern Jefferson dome in Gorham quadrangle.
Oregon
Intrusive rocks (Cretaceous and Jurassic) (Jurassic to Cretaceous)
Hornblende and biotite quartz diorite (tonalite), trondhjemite, granodiorite, and small amounts of norite, in batholithic masses and large dikelike bodies. Includes Bald Mountain Tonalite and Anthony Lake Granodiorite of Taubeneck (1957), tonalite and trondhjemite of Wallowa batholith and Cornucopia stock (Taubeneck, 1964; Nolf, 1966), quartz diorite intrusion in the Snake River area (Morrison, 1963), quartz diorite and minor other intrusive rocks in the Caviness quadrangle (Wolff, 1965), quartz diorite northeast of John Day and southeast of Ironside Mountain (Thayer and Brown, 1964), quartz diorite in the Sparta and Durkee quadrangles (Prostka, 1962; 1967), and granodiorite and related rocks of the Pueblo Mountains (Roback and others, 1987). Rubidium-strontium and potassium-argon ages indicate an age range from about 94 to 160 Ma (Taubeneck, 1963; Thayer and Brown, 1964; Armstrong and others, 1976)
