Larvikite

A coarse-grained, intrusive igneous rock that mainly consists of potash feldspar, oligoclase feldspar, titaniferous augite, and sodic amphibole. The two feldspar types occur in equal proportions, making a rock called monzonite. Larvikite was first described by Brögger in 1890 from the Larvik district of southern Norway.
