Das Magma und seine Produkte


THE solid igneous rocks are the products of colossal natural processes working unceasingly within and upon the crust of the earth. The study of these phenomena forms the special province of the petrologist, who attempts to discover the manner in which an original silicate melt—the magma—becomes differentiated into the varied mineral assemblages he finds in Nature.
