The stock of gabbro and nordmarkite penetrating the ancient gneisses and phyllites of Ascutney mountain, Vermont, is associated with various dike rocks. Among the leucocratic types, and probably connected with the nordmarkite, Daly1 describes paisanitic dikes which strikingly resemble fine-grained phases of the main stock. During a brief visit to the region in 1933, a few glass-bearing dikes were observed that contain spherulites. They have not been previously mentioned, and appear to have some bearing on the depth at which the stock consolidated. The field relations were studied by Balk and the petrographic examination made by Krieger.
