Geology - rocks and minerals

Dacite is a felsic extrusive rock, intermediate in composition between andesite and rhyolite. It is often found associated with andesite, and forms lava flows, dikes, and, in some cases, massive intrusions in the centres of old volcanoes. Dacite is the volcanic equivalent of granodiorite.

Acid rocks contain relatively high quantities of sodium, aluminium and potassium and more than 65% silica. Rocks in this group are light in colour because they are dominated by the minerals quartz, potassium and sodium (alkali) feldspar, and plagioclase feldspar and they may also be described as felsic.Rocks types include granite, granodiorite and their volcanic equivalents rhyolite and dacite.
