Classification of sedimentary rocks

Clastic (those composed of rock fragments) sedimentary rocks can be classified as: conglomerates. sandstones. siltstones. shales. claystones. Prefixes can also be added to indicate the dominant mineralogy. For example, a quartz-rich sandstone is a quartzose sandstone, a feldspar-rich sandstone is an arkose sandstone, a mica-rich sandstone is a ...

9.2: Sedimentary Rock Identification

2021-1-14 · Feldspar alters to clay with chemical weathering and erosion, so arkose, which is sandstone with more than 25% feldspar, indicates the sediment was deposited close to the source rock and was not in transport long. Grain size and shape and composition can indicate the composition, distance, and height of the source rock.

Sandstone

The rock consists of greyish green sandstone and siltstone layers, with the sandstone being predominant. The grain size of the sandstone varies, but medium sizes occur most frequently. The material of the grains is quartz, pink feldspar and muscovite. It contains pebbles of quartz porphyry, granite, metamorphites and quartz.

They are formed when materials like mud, pebbles and sand cement. When they cement, overtime, they create layers, and eventually, make sedimentary rocks. Sandstone (or sometimes known as arenite) is a clastic sedimentary rock that is made from mostly sand composed of sand sized rocks, such as granite and feldspar.
