Monzonite
last edited:  11/10/16    number of photos:  17
A monzonite is a coarse-grained igneous rock with nearly
equal amounts of plagioclase and orthoclase feldspars. 
Mineralogically, it falls between a syenite and a diorite. 
If quartz makes up more than 2% of the volume of the rock,
it is a quartz monzonite.
