Wheeler) Igneous Rocks of Central Labrador, with Emphasis on Anorthosite. J. H. Regional geobarometry in the contact aureoles of the anorthositic Nain Complex, Labrador. J File Size: 83KB. The Nain Complex consists of a wide variety of rock types and intrusions, mostly anorthosite and mapped over an area of ab square kilometers. Rock types range from anorthosite, norite, leuconorite, jotunite, fayalite-bearing opdalite, leucodiorite, diorite, syenodiorite, adamellite, troctalite-syenite, farsundite, charnockite, granodiorite, granite, to alaskite.

What is magmatism? Unanswered Questions Magmatism, Petrology 'Igneous rocks of central Labrador with emphasis on anorthositic and related intrusions' -- subject(s): Geology, Guidebooks. Classification of Igneous Rocks. Igneous rocks are CLASSIFIED according to their mineral composition and texture.. Minerals form as molten rock crystallizes. A generalized order of crystallization of minerals is shown in the Bowen's Reaction the magma cools, first olivine, then pyroxene, then amphobole, etc. will be crystallized (assuming the proper elements are available).

Monzonoritic rocks (=jotunites) related to late-Proterozoic massif type anorthosites in the Rogaland province () appear (i) as fine grained dykes crosscutting the large anorthositic bodies, (ii) as chilled margins related to leuconorites-norites (Hidra, Garsaknatt, Bjerkrem-Sokndal), (iii) as separated intrusions (Eia-Rekefjord.

The Dunnage Melange, located in the central mobile belt of the Appalachian Orogen, in north-central Newfoundland, is host to several suites of igneous intrusions. These include mafic through felsic dikes, stocks, and batholiths ranging in age from Early Ordovician through Jurassic.
