The research area was the exposed extruded igneous lava rock in Clering which became the mining location of PT Semarang Mineral Pembangunan in Clering, Donorejo, Jepara with an area of ± 11 ha. This study aims to identify and determine the composition of andesite minerals by macroscopic and microscopic, the main oxide compound data, the use of andesite in industrial sector. The lithology consisted of andesite lava textured, plagioclase, leucite, clinopyroxene, sanidine as phenocryst and ground mass in the form of microlithic andesite lava as a trachytic texture. The hardness of lithology tends to be more moderate, it is considered unsuitable for building foundations. Andesite and tuff in the study area are currently being mined to be used as raw material for glass because of high silica content. In the industrial sector, the feldspar minerals for flux glass, and ceramic raw materials with standard of PT Semarang Mineral Pembangunan and SNI ISO 14703: 2011, 1147-1984 and SNI ISO 12543: 2011. The lithology tuff can be utilized in the manufacturing of ceramics due to high silica and felspar content. The lithology andesite can be utilized as rocks flour in the manufacturing of fertilizer due to high natrium, potassium, and magnesium content.
