3.4 Classification of Igneous Rocks Physical Geology

In classifying intrusive igneous rocks, the first thing to consider is the percentage of ferromagnesian silicates. Thats relatively easy in most igneous rocks because the ferromagnesian minerals are clearly darker than the others. At the same time, its quite difficult to estimate the proportions of
