Thin Section 47 (Sample 324(198)-1213B-31R-1, 2–7 cm); (A) small euhedral crystal, (B) sector-zoned clinopyroxene, (D) clump of intergrown clinopyroxene and plagioclase, (E) clinopyroxene-plagioclase glomerophyric crystal clump in a finer grained matrix. C. Clinopyroxene phenocryst with irregular overgrowths in medium-trained basalt (Thin Section 45; Sample 324(198)-1213B-32R-4, 38–41 cm). Cross-polarized light.
