Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- In lithology, the simplest and most rudimentary form developed in the process of devitrification. See that word. Globulites are very minute rounded bodies, destitute of crystalline structure. They retain the name globulite so long as they remain irregularly scattered about and disconnected from one another. When grouped together, they assume various forms to which names have been assigned, of which cumulite and margarite are the most important. See these words and microlith.
GNU Webster's 1913
