The published literature on the Faroe Islands Basalt Group FIBG contains a large number of of whole rock bulk chemical analyses but there is an obvious dearth of mineral chemical dataBut from the viewpoint of mineralogy it is feldspar that is the most common mineral In fact feldspar makes up nearly 60 of the Earth s crust Feldspar is a group of minerals distinguished by the presence of aluminum silicates with potassium sodium calcium and barium

Plagioclase is a series of tectosilicate framework silicate minerals within the feldspar group Rather than referring to a particular mineral with a specific chemical composition plagioclase is a continuous solid solution series more properly known as the plagioclase feldspar series from the Ancient Greek for oblique fracture in reference to its two cleavage angles This mineral is often called potassium feldspar or K feldspar because by definition potassium always exceeds sodium in its formula Unlike the plagioclase group which varies in composition potassium feldspar has the same formula KAlSi 3 O 8 more below Gallery of Feldspars Photo c Andrew Alden licensed to About fair use
