Journal of Sedimentary Research (1985) 55 (3): 398-406.
...J. R. Boles; C. A. Landis; P. Dale Abstract The Moeraki boulders are large (to 2 m) calcite concretions with septarian veins of calcite and rare late-stage quartz and ferrous dolomite. The concretions are enclosed by Paleocene marine mudstones with vitrinite reflectance values of 0.29% R suggesting...

... uniform (and could represent concentric and/or pervasive growth) but later cements are distinct and must have formed concentrically. Examples include the Moeraki Boulders ( Boles et al. 1985), which contain a core of calcite microsparite surrounded by fibrous and radial‐fibrous calcite (see also...
