Abstract

Sand-sized detrital sanidine grains with hollow centers are quite common in the Pierce Canyon formation,(FOOTNOTE 1) a Permian or Triassic redbed of west Texas and southeastern New Mexico. Petrographic examination reveals that this type of hollow feldspar is widespread laterally and that it may be a useful stratigraphic marker.
