    Oct 04, 2016Graphic Granite is composed of feldspar and quartz coarsely crystallized, the quartz being set in the feldspar in masses shaped somewhat like letters of the alphabet. Greisen. Greisen is composed of quartz and white mica. It has been derived from granite by the conversion of feldspar into mica. It is important in being associated with tinstone.
