P number: P804364
Caption: ???????. Derbyshire, August 3rd 1914.
Description: In the process of cooling and contraction this rock frequently assumes a columnar structure and often divided by cross joints. In this case instead of being angular each segment owing to weathering takes a spheroidal form. It is stated that the cause of this is owing to the middle of each spheroid being a centre of crystallisation around which the different minerals of the rock arranged themselves.
