ID: 3219390

Age: Archean (2500 - 4000 Ma)

Description: Pinkish-red to bright-red, medium-grained to very coarse-grained, nonfoliated, massive, leucocratic granite of the Laramie batholith; contains a profusion of feldspar-rich pegmatites, some quartz veins, and numerous amphibolite and diabase dikes. Johnson and Hills (1976) reported a Rb/Sr whole-rock age of approximately 2.5 to 2.6 Ga (giga-annum or billions of years before present) or this unit.
