Micrographic Texture
... In petrology, micrographic texture is a fine-grained intergrowth of quartz and alkali feldspar, interpreted as the last product of crystallization in some igneous rocks which contain high or moderately high ... This fine-grained texture is similar to the coarser intergrowths in certain pegmatites and coarse granitic veins the quartz forms angular patches scattered through a ... Some of the coarser-grained examples are said to be "graphic", because the intergrowths vaguely resemble ancient cuneiform lettering ...
