Abstract

"Stylolites and microstylolites in a rhyolite from New South Wales are described and compared with those recorded by F. D. Bloss (1954) in a Newfoundland breccia. Factors promoting stylolite formation in lava may include differential devitrification, recrystallization and inversion of the silica minerals within siliceous bands, and deuteric activity as well as stress associated with load or folding. A method of viewing macrostylolites is outlined."
