Did you know?

That pseudo-breccia is a type of limestone resembling a breccia, in which angular limestone fragments are cemented together by limestones of different composition. pseudo-breccias are common in many preserved limestone sequences and may owe their origin to the dissolutional removal of originally interbedded and interstitial sulfate minerals followed by break-up and redistribution of the residual carbonate component [9].?
