Explanation: From my notes :
Grenu [geol.] Granular (of texture of rock) [Penguin Geol., Fairbridge]
Grenu (said of road pavement) Coarse (as regards surface – coarse aggregate with low fines content and/or bitumen content, so surface is rough).
grenu – S'applique à une structure, ou à une roche, montrant un assemblage de cristaux tous en grains visibles à l'oeil nu. La structure grenue est, en particulier, caractéristique de nombreuses r. magm. plutoniques (à refroidissement lent), avec un grain fin ou saccharoïde (1mm env.), un grain moyen (<=1cm), un grain grossier (>1cm) ...
[Dict. de géologie, Foucault & Raoult]
grenu – granular
roche grenue – grained rock
structure grenue – granular structure
texture grenue – granular texture
[Dict of Earth Science, Michel & Fairbridge]
granular texture – The texture of a rock consisting of mineral grains of approximately equal size
granule – A rock fragment with a diameter of between 2mm and 4mm, i.e. larger than a sand grain and smaller than a pebble
