dc.description.transcriptionDear Oscar, thank you for your note and the enclosed sample. The rock consists mostly of plagioclase (sodium-calcium feldspar) and a little augite. I would classift it as an anorthosite- I believe there are some occurences of this rock type in Oklahoma. I moved here at the beginning of March and find the change very much to my taste Best wishes Brian Mason
