Monastery, east of Estes Park, CO. Pegmatite sill intruded into "country rock," the metamorphic basement rock of Colorado. The basement rocks and sills were later faulted into horizontal positions. Pegmatites are coarse/large grained granitic masses with large crystals of quartz, feldspar, and tourmaline.
