Abstract

Associated with the schists of Mount Read and district
are some obscure igneous rocks, siliceous in nature, compact
in grain, often slightly schistose, which are what the
field geologist calls felsites or felstones. These terms,
however convenient, need explanation, for in different
countries they carry different meanings. In Germany the
word felsite (or micro-felsite) is applied to the compact
homogeneous-looking groundmass of quartz porphyries.
