    The texture can be similar to micrographic texture and to the coarser graphic intergrowths of quartz and alkali feldspar common in pegmatite. These textures document simultaneous crystallization of quartz and feldspar from a silicate melt at the eutectic point perhaps in the presence of a water-rich phase.

    Or-rich feldspar in the longer run is ubiquitous at the tips of plagioclase laths and intergrown with quartz yet their small size made analysis very difficult. Feldspars in the 168-hour 10-MPa experiment are ternary in composition (e.g. Ab 70 An 21 Or 9 ) with a small amount of alkali feldspar (Ab 62 An 9 Or 29 ) occurring at the tips of the

    They cool gradually and slowly. Individual crystals have time and space to grow large. Feldspar (pink to white blocky mineral) crystallizes at high temperatures early in the cooling process and thus has straight crystal sides. Quartz (clear glassy mineral) crystallizes later and fills spaces.
