A descriptive term for igneous rocks containing less than about 52 percent silica (SiO2).
Crystalline rocks (igneous and metamorphic) can be classified on their chemical composition, as reflected in the amount of SiO2 present (so-called normative composition). Rocks with rather low SiO2 contents (without free silica - the mineral quartz) are termed "basic". They will generally also contain lots of dark minerals (e.g. amphiboles or pyroxenes, perhaps olivine). Examples include the igneous rocks basalt and gabbro.
