These rocks are characterized by high amount of biotite associated with K-feldspar, plagioclase, and rarely quartz with flowed glass shards (eutaxitic texture).
Many samples preserve relict igneous or sedimentary textures, such as intergranular and trachytic textures in mafic flows, eutaxitic banding in felsic flows, ffagmental texture in tuffaceous rocks, and bedding in epiclastic rocks.
