Caption:
Basalt dyke intruding through basement granite next to the Orange River, about 50km downstream of Vioolsdrif, Northern Cape, South Africa. This is part of the Gannakouriep dyke swarm produced by hot magma welling up through fissures in the earth's crust during a continental rifting event about 720million years ago. More dykes can be seen crossing the hills in the background.
