Mesoproterozoic

ID: 2742472
Syenite Gneiss

Age: Mesoproterozoic (1000 - 1600 Ma)

Stratigraphic Name: Lake Hopatcong Intrusive Suite

Description: Light-pinkish-white- to buff-white-weathering, greenish-gray, medium-grained, moderately foliated rock consisting of two distinct phases: hornblende syenite gneiss containing microcline microperthite, oligoclase, hornblende, and opaque minerals; and pyroxene syenite gneiss containing microcline microperthite, oligoclase, clinopyroxene, accessory amounts of titanite, and opaque minerals. Despite the co-mingling of these two phases, they appear to belong respectively to the Byram and Lake Hopatcong Intrusive Suites. In Hamburg Mountain area.
