Question[edit]

I know it says "first draft," but this looks remarkably like the text at "http://www.geology.wisc.edu/~jill/gabbro.html" (I was looking for the chemical formula for gabbro). Epopt, are you ~jill? --Vicki Rosenzweig

I am not ~jill; the page no longer resembles hers at all. --the Epopt

this page needs more information on CERTAIN types of rocks like the classification and all that

Clarification?[edit]

The first sentence under the Petrology section makes no sense to me: "Gabbro is an extrusive melting lava." Gabbro is an intrusive rock type, not extrusive, and would form from magma rather than lava. If this sentence is saying something, it needs to be clarified. I am removing it from the article as it stands. -- BlueCanoe 21:45, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Hmm.. that bit of nonsense dates from 2 March - how did I miss that? Good move - maybe I have too many articles on my watchlist. Vsmith 22:33, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

essex, wales and essexite[edit]

I don't believe that there is an essex in wales, and essex, england has no igneous rocks at outcrop, I suspect that the type locality would be in New England USA where there are a number of intrusive rocks that have place names derived from east anglia, england e.g. Chelmsford granite. It could of course be new south wales, for all I know.

Should include the fact that it is intrusive equivalent of extrusive basalt.[edit]

Bojite[edit]

If anyone can clarify the term Bojite, a rare type of gabbro, it would help.Jstuby (talk) 15:17, 13 March 2013 (UTC)
