These rocks have doleritic, intergranular and poikilitic
texture (Fig 4D).
At Burnt Point, massive, pegmatitic gabbro contains cumulus ortho- and clinopyroxene, and large poikilitic
post-cumulus amphibole and plagioclase.
The main structure contains disseminated sulphides at the southern margin grading into net textured semi-massive and poikilitic
massive ore in the core and northern edge of the bodies (up to 80% sulphides -- Figure 3).
The primary ore textures comprise euhedral-anhedral-grained, metasomatic, edge-shared, void-filling, poikilitic
, slaty cleavage, skeletal, exsolution, graphic, crumpled, and cataclastic textures (Figure 4).
and overgrowth textures on plagioclase are common.
The Talavera sample shows large anhedral poikilitic
orthopyroxene crystals, leading to a hypidiomorphic subophitic to ophitic texture.
In some thin sections the hornblende is poikilitic
and contains inclusions of quartz.
3) Quartz occurs as cloudy anhedral grains with characteristic weak birefringence, prominent undulose extinction and low relief while muscovite occurs as tiny elongate plates with poikilitic
crystals of quartz.
Occurrence: As a monomineralic veinlet cross-cutting poikilitic
5a), locally reaching 20 cm, and they sometimes have ragged poikilitic
margins containing uniformly distributed inclusions of matrix minerals.
Finally, there are some rare but interesting boulders consisting of coarse-grained diorite with poikilitic
megacrysts of amphibole that grew around leucocratic droplets (Fig.
