Artist's Description

Welcome to the worlds of the language wars! See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dike_(geology) for the definitions but be aware that in Australia this geological phenomenon is spelt dyke.

The dyke is a dolerite. The rock it is intruding is a granite.

This particular dyke is exposed in an abandoned quarry near Mannum in South Australia on the banks of the Murray River.
