    Outside of Las Cruces we have the Organ Mountains. The northern third of the range–the really distinctive, photogenic part that everyone notices–is quartz monzonite.

    I make “take it for granite” jokes frequently about this. ‘Cause, you know, quartz monzonite looks like granite. Almost everyone thinks it is granite. I thought it was granite, until reading otherwise. If there is anything in the world that people are going to take for granite, it’s quartz monzonite.
