Pegmatite rock is available in black, brown, cream, green, grey, pink, red, rust, silver, white, yellow colors. It is Layered, Banded, Veined and Shiny in appearance. The Pegmatite mineral content includes Apatite, Beryl, Feldspar, Fluorite, Garnet, Lepidolite, Quartz, Silica, Spodumene, Topaz. Its compound content includes Aluminium Oxide, CaO, Iron(III) Oxide, FeO, Potassium Oxide, Magnesium Carbonate, MgO, Phosphorus Pentoxide. Let’s move on to the types of Pegmatite. The types of Pegmatite include Granite Pegmatite, Gabbro Pegmatite and Diorite Pegmatite. Fossils are the remains of prehistoric plants or animals which are embedded in rock and preserved in petrified form. Fossils are found only in sedimentary rocks. As Pegmatite belongs to Igneous Rocks, fossils are not found in it.
