Abstract


Granitic Igneous rock is commonly found as granite dust on most quarry site, this form of igneous rock possess the same elemental composition with feldspathic and kaolinite minerals found in-situ, granitic igneous rock found along Klington Quarry Site was characterized using XRF to determine the percentage composition of the granitic Igneous Rock and XRD to understand the mineralogical phase distribution. The granite dust was mixed in proportion with feldspar and wood ash respectively to detect the best functional composition suitable for forming a ceramic glaze. The mixture was fired to a temperature of 1250oc with composition G4 exhibiting the most promising result.

Author Keywords: granitic igneous rock, functional ceramic glazes.
