Metagabbro specimens from Lom, Central Norway. Also known as scapolite-hornblende due to the absence of feldspar in the rock are available in 3 optional sizes and come supplied in a card tray with a data label.
Metagabbro is a metamorphosed variant of gabbro, the rock is also known as scapolite-hornblende as the rock its self does not contain any feldspars (as expected in gabbros) but instead, the white minerals are scapolit with the dark green/grey mineral being hornblende. These rock specimens also appear to exhibit a possible form of banding, as the dark hornblende appear to orientated in a almost uniform direction. The metagabbro we stock was collected by staff from Lom in Central Norway, each piece will be supplied in a sized card tray which also has an information label.
