Abstract

The following notes lay no claim to be an exhaustive
description of our familiar "diabase" or "dolerite" rock,
which plays such an important part in the geology and
physical configuration of our Island. The present object is
rather to place upon record some inferences drawn from the
examination of numerous microscopical sections of specimens
collected or received from all parts of Tasmania.
