Glauconitization of rhyolite sand grains
Journal of Sedimentary Petrology (March 1964) 34 (1): 84-90


Rhyolite sand grains showing sequential replacement by glauconite have been observed in Upper Cambrian Lamotte-Bonneterre transitional beds near Ironton. No evidence of direct organic action during replacement was observed, but it is possible that accumulated organic detritus contributed to the physico-chemical environment favorable to glauconitization. This sand was deposited in relatively shallow water, near to shore.
