Apt to intrude; characterized by intrusion; entering without right or welcome.
A volume of igneous rock that was injected, while still molten, into the earth's crust of into other rocks.
igneous rock that forced its way in a molten state into the country rock
A body of magma that is injected or is intruded into the pre-existing rock.
Igneous rocks that crystallize below Earth's surface.
derived from molten material that originated and solidified beneath the Earth's surface
magma that has penetrated into pre-existing rock and solidified
Said of rocks that are forced into pre-existing rocks. Dikes and sills are intrusive igneous rocks, injected in the molten state into previously solidified rocks.
an igneous rock formed below the earth's surface
pertaining to material forced, while still in a fluid state, into cracks or between layers of rock (cools very slowly!).
tending to intrude (especially upon privacy); "she felt her presence there was intrusive"
of rock material; forced while molten into cracks between layers of other rock
Formed when molten materials cool below the surface of the earth. Rocks formed this way, including granite, tend to have larger crystal grains than extrusive rocks, due to their slower cooling. They are also called plutonic rocks.
Forced-in inappropriately, especially without invitation, fitness, or permission
a rock formed from cooling of a magma in the crust.
igneous rocks formed from magma squeezed between spaces within the strata of the Earth's crust, often deep underground; from Latin intrudere 'to thrust in'.
a rock mass formed below earth's surface fi7om molten magma which was intruded into a preâ€‘existing rock mass and cooled to a solid
magma (or resulting igneous rock after cooling) which was squirted into already-existing rocks underneath the land surface.
rock which while molten, penetrated into or between other rocks but solidified before reaching the surface
Of or pertaining to intrusion, both the process and the rock so formed
A body of igneous rock formed by the consolidation of magma intruded into other rocks, in contrast to lavas, which are extruded upon the surface.
The process of, and rock formed by, intrusion.
Adjective applied to the ways in which magmas can force their way into older rocks and cool to form intrusive igneous rocks.
forced into fissures or between strata while molten. [AHDOS
Igneous rock formed beneath the surface of the Earth; typically with large crystals due to slow cooling. Also known as plutonic; opposite of extrusive or volcanic.
a volume of igneous rock that has crystallized from a molten magma into the earth's crust or into other rocks.
