Siliceous rocks

We have several different types of siliceous rocks here. For instance, at the location of Serra de Sintra we have granit as a pure plutonic rock; At this location there are several outcrops of granit that appear intruded in other king of rocks, like schist and limestone for instance. But, I’m not an expert in geology.

Well…

As long as you and others on this site don’t mind my many questions, it won’t be long!

What is the saliceous rock type you have there?

So, what are you waiting for?
