Quick Reference

Applied to igneous intrusive rocks formed by the accumulation of crystals as a result of gravity settling. It is typical of layered intrusions and common in some differentiated meteorites. The early-formed minerals are called ‘cumulus’ minerals and show a regular variation in composition with their height in the intrusion. See mineral layering.
