Abstract

Various limestones of middle Jurassic and younger age in the Middle East and Britain, and certain Recent calcareous marine sediments contain pellety debris stained grey or black with finely divided pyrite. The staining appears to involve deposition on pellety debris of limonite, followed by its reaction with bacterially produced hydrogen sulphide to form first ferrous sulphide and subsequently pyrite.
