|Name||Scituate Igneous Suite - rhyolite|
Igneous > Volcanic > Felsic-volcanic > Rhyolite (Flow, Dike or sill)rhyolite - Pink to gray, fine-grained, locally porphyritic felsite (phenocrysts of quartz and Carlsbad-twinned orthoclase). Includes some hypabyssal intrusive rocks (feeder dikes and sills), and some probable lava flows. Contains accessory biotite, opaque minerals, zircon, monzonite, fluorite, sphene, apatite, and epidote. Quartz phenocrysts commonly are embayed and partly resorbed; matrix is fine-grained intergrowth of quartz and feldspar, probably formed from devitrified glass.
