To shed light on this historically confusing claim, if you look here or here and here, you'll see that second part of the more specific term, "quartz monzonite", apparently didn't even exist by the time this particular Granite Mountain was named. Considering, too, the etymologic value of granite as 'granulated' or 'grainy', which classification many similar and potentially dissimilar rock types could (once) have fit, the stone and mountain in question were certainly accurately named at the time, before being hyperdefined into questionability by adventuresome geologists. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:27, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Good to know, hence "Granite Mountain" stuck. In videos by FamilySearch, this is explained. I enjoyed reading this WP article. THANKS, Charles Edwin Shipp (talk) 14:18, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
