A coarsely crystalline igneous or plutonic rock composed mainly of feldspar and quartz, normally with muscovite and/or biotite mica. Usually contains various other minerals, that might be of financial importance. Pegmatite is chemically identical to granite, but has actually a much coarser crystal construction. Typical colors tend to be gray, white, and green. Pegmatite is quarried for attractive stone and as a source of beryllium, columbium and tantalum whenever they are present. Gemstones of quartz/silicate family may also be present pegmatites.
