Quartz sand grains floating in limestone (Cambro-Ordovician and Lower Devonian) were examined by electron microscopy. Four classes of diagenetic surface textures were observed: crystal surfaces, solution surfaces, pressure solution striations, and fracture surfaces. These features result from pore water solution and deposition, and from grain movements during diagenesis.
