Limeira Intrusion Notice the elongated angular rock columns. Intrusions can be classified according to the shape and size of the intrusive body and its relation to the other formations into which it intrudes: 1. That’s perfectly logical because a subterranean ocean formed on the second day of creation between the layers of granite and the layers of basalt when “God said: Let [the firmament] divide the waters from the waters; and it was done.” 11  The alligator is only a figurative representation of a false god that comes from the watery abyss, but the imagery further confirms the existence of a subterranean ocean on the second day of the physical creation. dike: a tabular-shaped intrusion that cuts across layering in the surrounding rock. 1992) while the emplacement of sub-horizontal tabular intrusions occur mainly in sedimen-tary host discontinuities; estimated total thickness of such intrusions vary in general between 2 to 200 m, but may reach up to 1,000 m (Marques & Ernesto 2004).

Basalt, andesite, and rhyolite are extrusive (not intrusive) igneous rocks. Such pillow structure is typical of lavas erupted under water. The difference between basalt and gabbro is that basalt is a fine-grained rock while gabbro is a coarse-grained rock. Most basalts occur as lava flows either in volcanoes or as extensive sheets building up a lava plateau, which may cover hundreds of thousands of square kilometres, and … are formed in a submarine environment.

In this image please note that there are multiple layers beneath the lion couch. Devils Tower in northeastern Wyoming is a good example of a basaltic rock with sheeted dikes. Dikes are small (<20 m wide) shallow intrusions that show a discordant relationship to the rocks in which they intrude. Load-cast and pipe structures at the bases of mafic sheets indicate that the gabbro-diorite unit represents a sequence of basaltic injections that ponded on crystal-rich mush at the base of a silicic magma chamber and variably interacted with overlying crystal-poor granitic magma.
