Description: stocks, laccoliths, sills, and dikes. Major rock types--basalt, hawaiite, mugearite, trachyte, quartz trachyte, rhyolite, phonolite, latite, trachyandesite, and their coarser grained equivalents. At Marble Canyon intrusive stock in Diablo Mtns, Culberson Co, 30 mi north of Van Horn, TX, (Price and Henry, 1986, p. 17), rocks are alkali gabbro, nepheline syenite dikes, quartz syenite at core of stock, also hybrid rock, numerous contact metamorphism and hydrothermal minerals reported. K-Ar ages about 33, 35, 36, 37, and 39.5 Ma (p. 22). Quitman-Sierra Blanca complex are caldera ring-dike intrusives and stocks: quartz monzonite, rhyolite, granite (laccolith). K-Ar age 33.9+-0.8 Ma (Shannon and Goodell, 1986).
