Description:
This rock forms part of the Tejeda formation, a large intrusive complex of some 500 trachytic cone sheet dikes, hypabyssal syenite stocks and trachyphonolitic subordinate radial dikes that formed a 12 km diameter intrusive complex within the Miocene Caldera de Tejeda between 12.3 and 7.32 million years ago, intruding into the lavas and ignimbrites that had previously filled in this caldera. Whilst most of the trachytic rock’s true colour is that of a medium grey or medium purple-grey colour, the outer surfaces are usually altered to shades of white, cream, tan and rusty brown colour, which gives the canyon lands of the Caldera de Tejeda area this distinctive warm golden appearance. This sample is so highly altered by weathering that it no longer is recognizable as a trachytic volcanic rock.
