In geology, enderbite is primarily an igneous rock of the charnockite series, consisting essentially of quartz, antiperthite (or perthite), orthopyroxene (usually hypersthene) and magnetite, and is equivalent to an orthopyroxene bearing tonalite. It is named for its occurrence in Enderby Land, Antarctica.
