Quartz and ferruginous organic debris were found in micritic limestone whose cement was a mixture of cryptocrystalline
calcite and clay minerals.
The classical Neuburg SE is thermoanalytically investigated specimens contain a combination of amorphous and cryptocrystalline
Si[O.sub.2] modifications and do not show quartz transformation behavior at 573[degrees]C; and cannot be produced even approximately by synthesis or by the mixture or ad-mixture of native components of a Si[O.sub.2] modification with kaolinite , Both mineral phases of SE build up a distinctive conglomerate, and the combination of round-shaped particles and nanoplatelets give its unique structure.
pyrite 'dust' occurs throughout and pyritic aggregates are seen in some horizons.
Slightly larger grains of carbonate (calcite) were observed to be bound by the cryptocrystalline
mud binding Sand wave Yellowish gray, massive, and fine- grained "biomicritic limestone." The main component is micritic carbonate minerals.

magnesite/bentonite clay composite: an experimental and modelling approach," Journal of Cleaner Production, vol.
(a) Euhedral pyrite and anhedral chalcopyrite that replace along the margin of pyrite in cryptocrystalline
to fine-grained quartz vein.
The LF-chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline
a-quartz (Si[O.sub.2]) that is 50-100 nm in size (Rios et al., 2001) and contains chemically bound hydroxyl groups in the form of silanole (SiOH) and molecular water ([H.sub.2]O) (Florke et al., 1982; Graetsch et al., 1985).
The corresponding SEM images (Figure 4) confirmed that the hematite ore consisted mainly of scaly, acicular, cryptocrystalline
, and metasomatic textures, with a sand consolidation structure (rarely, with an oolitic structure).
After CBD extraction, some of these gravels showed a colourless, cryptocrystalline
, irregular and porous fabric within which Fe oxides were still present (Fig.
It was found that the Indus bed material used in the construction of Tarbela Dam contained slow reactive aggregates like greywacke and cryptocrystalline
silica, which caused ASR (Majid et al., 2013).
The term garttamalga refers to white cryptocrystalline
Most are a variety of cryptocrystalline
silicates, divided into fibrous chalcedony, granular cherts, and microcrystalline silicates (MCS), distinguished by coarser grains visible under a hand lens.
