002 Granite tors - Photography by Kevin McCue

The granite 'grainy rock' has three main constituents, greyish quartz, white feldspar and shiny flat dark plates of mica. When granite weathers, the clay minerals and sand or gravel-sized quartz particles are removed by wind and rain leaving isolated rounded cores of more resistant granite the 'tors'.
