The siderite crystallographic fabric was analysed using the anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility, which is carried by paramagnetic siderite The siderite concretions from marine and nonmarine formations exhibit differences in fabric style, although both display increases in the degree of preferred siderite caxis orientation towards the ....

91 13 Siderite 92 Two iron-carbonate siderite, FeCO 3 concretions of exotic outlook were investigated, 93 Nagykovácsi Nk and Úri, and also sedimentary siderite concretions and fragments as 94 counterparts from Délegyháza, Hungary, in order to determine probable origin and fate of ,...

Siderite concretions within the Copan crinoid Lagerstätte have not previously been used as major sources of data on paleoenvironmental processes even though they are abundant throughout the section Importantly, large siderite concretions were the only reliable markers for locating the articulated crinoid-bearing horizons in the field Lewis...

The concretions are composed of 50-100 mu m, zoned crystallites, which exhibit no noticeable center-to-edge variation within any individual concretion This indicates that siderite crystallites nucleated at virtually the same time across the entire concretion and that the concretions did not grow by radial addition of siderite layers around a central nucleus...

Typical feature of concretions is presence of septarian cracks Matrix of the concretions is formed almost purely by two populations of non-zoned Mg-Ca or Mg-rich siderite with dispersed quartz, mica and accessory minerals similar to surrounding claystones, ie apatite, zircon, monazite and TiO 2 ,...

that the concretions are of diagenetic origin Experimentalprocedure A preliminary X-ray investigation revealed the presence of both siderite and calcite in samples H3o, H3 I For all other samples siderite was the only carbonate phase detected Non-carbonate minerals comprised quartz, kaolinite....

Siderite concretions consist of even finer carbonate crystals, mainly siderite 40-70 vol but also abundant ferroan calcite, accompanied by iron oxyhydroxides and detrital minerals The δ13C values of the calcite concretions -68 to -41o most likely reflect a combination of bacterial organic matter oxidation and input of marine biodetrital carbonate...

Siderite concretions that formed at shallow depths in the sediment column contain a large volume percent carbonate 75-85 , preserve uncompacted sediment textures, and have oxygen isotope ratios similar to those of carbonates precipitated in equilibrium with seawater delta 18 O nearly equal e 0 to -2 per thousand , PDB...

12-03-2014 0183 32 It is hopelessly overgrown now, but 50 years ago the spoil area circled was loaded with coal-swamp trunks roots, and innumerable siderite concretions Splitting these nodules yielded a recognizable fossil about one time in ten, and while being no where near the quality of preservation of Mazon Creek concretions, they were the subject of endless summer days of fascination by this ,...

concretions and nodul Representative specimens of the concretions and nodules and their corresponding enclosing sedi l lents were analyzed by thin section and by quantitative and qualitative x-ray diffraction methodso Fourtee types of concretions and three types of nodul classified...

01-10-2013 0183 32 Also in these thin, crinoid-bearing units are extremely localized siderite concretions precipitated around sites where soft tissues would have been volumetrically more abundant within large macrofossils, notably tegmina and proximal arms of articulated crinoids, indicating extremely rapid burial events that episodically punctuated the sediment-starved conditions...

Back-scattered electron microscopy has been used to examine the microstructure of nonmarine-shale-hosted siderite concretions The concretions are composed of 50-100 mu m, zoned crystallites, which exhibit no noticeable center-to-edge variation within any individual concretion This indicates that siderite crystallites nucleated at virtually the same time across the entire concretion and that ....

These recently formed siderite concretions allow us to explore the geochemical processes that lead to the formation of this less common carbonate mineral We conclude that there are two phases of siderite concretion growth within the sediment, as there are distinct changes in the carbon isotopic composition and mineralogy across the concretions...

Siderite concretions from the mid-Pennsylvanian Francis Creek Shale of the Mazon Creek area, in northeastern Illinois, contain exceptionally preserved soft-tissue fossils Scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy, time of flight-secondary ion mass spectrometry and micro-x-ray diffraction on polychaete worm, jellyfish and holothurian samples highlighted detrital clay and ....

The Gammon member of the Pierre shale of the northern Great Plains, USA, contains abundant siderite concretions The relative depth and time of siderite precipitation can be inferred from the structure, mineralogy and isotopic composition of these concretions Concretions that formed at shallow depths, early in the history of the sediment, contain a high percentage 75-85 of carbonate ....

The diagenetic history of siderite concretions in Mesozoic sedimentary rocks on the island of Bomholm has been investigated using stable isotope-, AAS- and XRD-analysis and determination of carbonate content Siderite concretions and bands, found in non-marine as well as marine environments, are investigated The siderite...

The research investigated three iron carbonate siderite sedimentary concretions from Nagykovácsi, Úri and Délegyháza, Hungary To identify possible source rocks and effects of the glaze-like exposed surface of the concretions, we carried on comparative petrological, mineralogical, geochemical and ,...
