Description:~ 600 kg of cobble to boulder size ingneous rocks; > 90% are fresh with angular surfaces. The majority of samples (> 90%) are mafic basalts that vary from Cpx-rich porphytic varieties to Cpx-ol phyric and plag-phyric types. There appears to be a complete continuum between the various types but Cps-rich varieties are dominant. Picritic and plag-phyric types comprise < 20% of the total. A few volcaniclastic breccias are present; one is coated by sulfur and alters ~ 30% of the rock.One unusual sample is an amphibole xenocryst andesite with 10-15% euhedral amphibole phenocryst (xenocrysts?). None of the samples have significant amounts of glass or glassy margins, many are vesicular but this varies from 1% to 50% in more pumacous types. 3 Bags of undescribed rocks for Solomon Is. 4 Bags of undescribed rocks for HIG. 1 Bag each of described samples for HIG and SI.
