WHAT DOES SIENITE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

sienite

Syenite

Syenite is a coarse-grained intrusive igneous rock of somewhat the same general composition as granite but with the quartz either absent or present in relatively small amounts. Some syenites contain larger degree of mafic components and are characterized as intermediate composition. The feldspar component of syenite is predominantly alkaline in character . Plagioclase feldspars may be present in small quantities, less than 10%, at times perthetic. When present, ferromagnesian minerals are usually hornblende amphibole and clinopyroxene, and rarely biotite. Biotite is rare, because in a syenite magma most aluminium is used in producing feldspar. Syenites are usually either peralkaline with high proportions of alkali elements relative to aluminum, or peraluminous with a higher concentration of aluminum relative to alkali elements. Syenites are formed from alkaline igneous activity, generally formed in thick continental crustal areas, or in Cordilleran subduction zones. To produce a syenite, it is necessary to melt a granitic or igneous protolith to a fairly low degree of partial melting.
