DF2014:Igneous extrusive layer

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search
This article is about an older version of DF.
Created when magma exits a volcano and cools above the Earth's surface.

Igneous extrusive stone layers are formed from andesite, basalt, dacite, obsidian, and rhyolite. Of these five, andesite, dacite, and rhyolite are functionally identical, different only in appearance and name, basalt is like the other three except that it is magma-safe, and obsidian is... unique.

In Real Life[edit]

In real-world geology, Igneous extrusive stone is formed by lava solidifying above the surface, open to the air. This is the main point of difference from igneous intrusive stone, which solidifies below the surface. This distinction is not kept in Dwarf Fortress geology, in which the difference is simply the name and contents of the two types of stone.
