It can be assumed that a portion of the rigid amorphous chains, trapped in the polymer-particle interphase, is devitrified above a critical temperature, increasing the nucleation rate.
The groundmass is largely composed of devitrified glass with phenocrysts of feldspar, clinopyroxene, and quartz, and rare ilmenite, hematite, sphalerite, and galena.
The only factor detrimental to that hypothesis is an indication that felsic volcanic rocks of the Torres Strait Volcanics are rather widely devitrified (Willmott et al.
