Granite - (igneous rock)
"Granite is an igneous rock and is formed from magma. Granitic magma has many potential origins but it must intrude other rocks. "
Granite may contain the following minerals: quartz, feldspars (microcline, orthoclase, albite), biotite, muscovite; Sometimes contain: hornblende, augite, magnetite, zircon.


Diabase - (igneous rock)
A fine- to medium-grained, dark gray to black intrusive igneous rock. It is extremely hard and tough and is commonly quarried for crushed stone, under the name of trap. Although not popular, it makes an excellent monumental stone and is one of the dark-coloured rocks commercially known as black granite. Diabase is widespread and occurs in dikes (tabular bodies inserted in fissures), sills (tabular bodies inserted while molten between other rocks), and other relatively small, shallow bodies. Chemically and mineralogically, diabase closely resembles the volcanic rock basalt, but it is somewhat coarser and contains glass. With increase in grain size, diabase may pass into gabbro.
Diabase may contain the following minerals: plagioclase feldspars, augite; Sometimes contains: hornblende, magnetite, olivene, glass
