Graphic Granite


I HAVE been spending some time of late in the examination of the rocks of this district, and was pleasantly surprised, a few weeks back, at finding some well-marked specimens of graphic granite among the waste material raised from Huel Agar Mine. It very closely resembles that found at Portsoy, N.B., but the felspar is grey instead of red. As I am not aware that this interesting rock is known to exist in any other locality in England, the observation may be worthy of record.
