- Gabbro is a phaneritic (coarse-grained), mafic intrusive igneous rock formed from the slow cooling of magnesium-rich and iron-rich magma into a holocrystalline mass deep beneath the Earth's surface.
- The specimen of this thin section had been taken from the gabbro rock basement complexes of Saint Chatrine, South Sinai, Sinai, Egypt.
