Feldspar

Feldspar, along with patches of epimatrix (patches of clay replacing feldspar: Dickinson, 1970), form an average of 2.4% of framework of conglomerate and 9.7% of grains in sandstone from the Tantalus formation. This is significantly lower than in the Tanglefoot formation where they form 25% of framework in the conglomerate and 33.4% of the ...

feldspathic sandstone. [ fel′spath·ik ′san‚stōn] (petrology) Sandstone rich in feldspar; intermediate in composition between arkosic sandstone and quartz sandstone, made up of 10-25% feldspar and less than 20% matrix material.

Rounding of Quartz and K-Feldspar Sand & Sandstone ...

2017-11-15 · For example, we have found many angular K-feldspar grains in the Coconino Sandstone of Arizona throughout its aerial and vertical extent (Fig. 6) which is considered by many to be a "type" example of an ancient eolian deposit (McKee and Bigarella 1979). Most of the Coconino Sandstone consists of large cross-beds and no reports have been ...

Authigenic K-feldspar in the Bromsgrove Sandstone ...

Authigenic K-feldspar is a ubiquitous feature of the Bromsgrove Sandstone Formation (Triassic) in Central England. It occurs mainly as partially to completely developed euhedral overgrowths on detrital K-feldspar cores.

Feldspar minerals make up over 50% of Earth''s crust.

Sandstone | Minerals Education Coalition

Sandstone. Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed mostly of quartz sand, but it can also contain significant amounts of feldspar, and sometimes silt and clay. Sandstone that contains more than 90% quartz is called quartzose sandstone. When the sandstone contains more than 25% feldspar, it is called arkose or arkosic sandstone.
