    Classification and origin of granites. The identification of the petrogenetic process responsible for a particular granite, and associated igneous rocks, is a continuing challenge in petrology Author: Nelson Eby.   Third, almost all granite is igneous (it solidified from magma) and plutonic (it did so in a large, deeply buried body or pluton). The random arrangement of grains in granite—its lack of fabric—is evidence of its plutonic origin. Other igneous, plutonic rocks, like granodiorite, monzonite, tonalite and quartz diorite, have similar : Andrew Alden.

Granite has a felsic composition and is more common in recent geologic time in contrast to Earth's ultramafic ancient igneous history. Felsic rocks are less dense than mafic and ultramafic rocks, and thus they tend to escape subduction, whereas basaltic or gabbroic rocks tend to sink into the mantle beneath the granitic rocks of the continental cratons.

In the Lachlan Fold Belt of southeastern Australia, Upper Devonian A-type granite suites were emplaced after the Lower Devonian I-type granites of the Bega Batholith.

Individual plutons of two A-type suites are homogeneous and the granites are characterized by late interstitial annite. Chemically they are distinguished from I-type granites with similar SiO2 Cited by: Journal of Petrology 'This book is a must for all those engaged in the study of granites, and igneous rocks in general, from undergraduates to professors.

Granites have been the subject of investigation since geology began. Written by a geologist who has studied granites for over 50 years, this text represents a balanced view of current knowledge of granites, and provides insight into where future problem-solving efforts should be concentrated.
