Sedimentary Rock Review

Test You Knowledge


Sedimentary rock review

Conglomerate - Clastic

-rounded gravel sized particles

-pieces have been lithified


Sedimentary rock review

Breccia - Clastic

-angular pieces lithified together


Sedimentary rock review

Banded Sandstone – Clastic

-sand sized pieces lithified together


Sedimentary rock review

Arkose – clastic

-high content of feldspar

-pieces of many different rock lithified together


Sedimentary rock review

Quartz Sandstone – Clastic

-will not effervesce with HCL

-light in color (Quartz composition)


Sedimentary rock review

Shale – Clastic

-has undergone compaction

-was once mud

-may contain oil or natural gas


Sedimentary rock review

Clay – Clastic

-microscopic particle size

-non porous

-super fine particles have been lithified


Sedimentary rock review

Crystalline Limestone – Chemical Biological

-will react with HCl (contains CaCo3)

-forms inshallow, calm, warm marine waters


Sedimentary rock review

Travertine – Chemical Biological

-will react with HCl

-is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs


Sedimentary rock review

Coquina – Chemical/Biological

-will react with HCl

-Coquina forms near the shore when shells, mineral calcite, and sometimes phosphate settle on the bottom of the ocean


Sedimentary rock review

Chalk – Biological/Chemical

-reacts with HCl

-It forms in deep marine conditions in oceans


Sedimentary rock review

Tufa – Chemical/Biological

-reacts with HCl

-type of limestone which forms in close proximity to bodies of water with a high content of dissolved minerals


Sedimentary rock review

Bituminous Coal – Chemical

-Coal forms from the accumulation of plant debris, usually in a swamp environment


Sedimentary rock review

Fossiliferous limestone – Chemical/Biological

-will react with HCl

-formed in a marine environment
