Kata Tjuta, covering about 3,500 ha, comprises 36 steep-sided rock domes of gently dipping Mount Currie conglomerate consisting of phenocrysts of fine grained acid and basic rocks, granite and gneiss in an epidote rich matrix. ❋ Unknown (2008)

Basically, a process called metamorphism caused the basalts in Shenandoah to recrystallize with new minerals, such as chlorite, epidote, and albite, which help give the rocks their greenish hue. ❋ Gardner, Lisa (2003)

Plagioclase remains a stable phase within the rock, though the mafic minerals have been altered primarily to chlorite + epidote. ❋ Unknown (2000)

The summit of Crystal Head is of flat tabular form; and the sides, which are both steep and rugged, are covered with stunted trees and high grass, now quite dry: the geology of this part is principally of siliceous sandstone; and on the beach we found large detached water-worn masses of the same rock, incrusted with quartz and epidote in a crystallized state. ❋ Phillip Parker King (N/A)

The rarer stones, sphene and epidote, likewise exhibit this property markedly. ❋ Frank Bertram Wade (N/A)

They cannot go on growing together; the quartz crystal is five times as thick, and more than twenty times as strong [Footnote: Quartz is not much harder than epidote; the strength is only supposed to be in some proportion to the squares of the diameters.], as the epidote; but he stops at once, just in the very crowning moment of his life, when he is building his own summit! ❋ John Ruskin (1859)

Now, you see, a comparatively large and strong quartz-crystal, and a very weak and slender little one of epidote, have begun to grow, close by each other, and sloping unluckily towards each other, so that they at last meet. ❋ John Ruskin (1859)
