Areas of skeletal grainstone and biocementstone also occur: the former consists of skeletal fragments and equant sparite in between the grains due to the removal of the micrite matrix via dissolution processes (Fig. 1g), the latter consists of radiaxial fibrous calcite embedding bryozoans and brachiopods (Fig. 1h).The grainstones and packstones usually have the best permeabilities and porosities (25-120 md and 20-26%, respectively), because they are characterized primarily by interparticle porosity, but these textures are not always permeable when they occur within the vicinity of stylolites.The skeletal parts of organisms are commonly composed of calcite, magnesian calcite, aragonite or opaline silica. This mineralogy determines the susceptibility of the skeletal fragment to diagenetic change and so its current composition and fabric in a limestone or dolomite. calcite skeletal grains, which contain less than 4 mole % magnesium in ...texture.

Note that oolitic facies (wackestone and packstone) are the most dominant facies in this outcrop, while peloidal–skeletal grainstone, mudstone, floatstone, and dolomite are occasionally interbedded with these oolitic facies. Legend is for Figs. 3d and 4bThis facies transition is commonly marked by a thin (≤ 3 ft) skeletal-ooid grainstone to packstone. Typical logs of the Hugoton Member indicate lower neutron porosity than density porosity, indicating dolomitic carbonates (figs. 25 and 26). Interbedded anhydrites have very low gamma-ray values and negative density porosities (fig. 25).Apr 25, 2023 · The north-western margin of the platform in the area of Castleton and to the south of Buxton evolved into a by-pass slope dominated by storm-influenced skeletal grainstone shoals (Gawthorpe and Gutteridge 1990; Harwood 2005), whereas the southern margin was a low-angle distally steepened ramp with tidal bars (Gutteridge 2003; Harwood 2005).
