diorite (intermediate igneous rock, <igneous rock by composition: chemical>, ... Materials (hierarchy name))

 

Note: A hard, coarse-grain, black-and-white speckled, granite-like rock composed of plagioclase feldspar mixed with hornblende, biotite, and augite, sometimes with small amounts of orthoclase or quartz. Diorite was valued by the Egyptians and Sumerians for statuary and is presently used in building construction.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 一種質硬、粒粗、帶黑白斑點、似花崗岩的岩石,由斜長石混合角閃石、黑雲母和輝石而成,有時也帶有少量的正長石或石英。埃及人和蘇美爾人(Sumerians)重視閃長岩可用於雕塑,現在則用於建築工程。 
Dutch ..... Alle kristallijnen gesteenten met graniettextuur donker van kleur, met een hoog gehalte aan plagioklaas en weinig kwarts. Wordt soms aangeduid met 'zwart graniet', hoewel het geen echte granietsoort is. 
Spanish ..... Cualquiera de las diversas rocas cristalinas con textura de granito, de color oscuro, con un alto contenido de plagioclasa y un bajo contenido de cuarzo. Llamada a veces "granito negro", a pesar de no ser un verdadero granito.
