Description

Second in a series of pans of exposures of the Talcott basalt (early Jurassic age, ~200 million years old) in Meriden, CT

This is a close-up of some of the pillows showing some nice structure - in particular, deposits of a whitish material in between the pillows. This appears to be hyaloclastite, a breccia (or rock formed by cemented pieces of other rock) that forms when pieces break off of the pillows during formation and are later cemented by mineals precipitating out of the water surrounding them.
