Gabbro Big Feldspar
£1.00 – £2.74
Hand size specimens of the big feldspar variant of gabbro, samples were collected from Carrock fell, Cumbria, UK and can be supplied in 3 sizes.
Big Feldspar Gabbro, is similar in composition to classic Gabbro specimens one can find any where in igneous regions. Like gabbro, it forms in plutonic environments, however, due to a slower, cooler temperature at the time of crystallization. The minerals in this particular gabbro are very coarse and can easily be seen with the naked eye, giving the rock a speckled grey, black and white colour. These samples of Big Feldspar gabbro come from Carrock Fell, Cumbria and are supplied in a card tray with a label. We can also supply cut and lacquered specimens, these are the same rock, however, one side has been cut and the sprayed with lacquer giving it a smooth surface, allowing you to see the texture better,making it suitable for educational use.
