Limited developments of limestone, sandstone, siltstone, ironstone and evaporite minerals occur throughout the sequence. Rocks and minerals play a valuable role in natural systems such as providing habitat like the cliffs at Grand Canyon National Park where endangered condors nest, or provide soil nutrients in Redwood where the tallest trees in the world grow.

Rocks and minerals are important for learning about earth materials, structure, and systems. Photographs and information for a large collection of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.

The oldest rocks to appear at the surface in Kent are the mudstones, limestones, siltstones and sandstones of the Wealden Group which underpin the wooded landscape of The Weald.

This book lays out a mosaic of facts and fancies concerning the state’s landscapes, the rocks that underlie and make up the landscapes, and the history of the people now living or who have lived amid New Mexico’s exciting and varied scenery.

Sedimentary. Formed when layers of sediment made of small particles of rock, eroded and transported by the wind, rivers and ice; crushed up shell and dead sea creatures and crushed up minerals are compacted together until they become layeers of solid rock.

This process is called Lithifaction. Outstanding geology Underneath the patchwork landscape of the High Weald lie bands of sandstone and clay - originally laid down when dinosaurs roamed here over million years ago.

The clay is soft and easily worn away creating a rolling landscape - the clay forming the low valleys of the High Weald and the harder sandstone forming the high. An introduction to rocks and minerals with detailed photos, description and identification information.
