Graphic texture is commonly created by exsolution and devitrification and immiscibility processes in igneous rocks. It is called 'graphic' because the exsolved or devitrified minerals form wriggly lines and shapes which are reminiscent of writing.
Additional recommended knowledge
Trachyte is a volcanic rock which typically has graphic texture. Devitrified obsidian and other volcanic glasses typically develop graphic textures; pepperite is a typical rock formed by this process.
