Non-Skeletal Grain types

Intraclasts

1. Intraclasts

Ooidal grainstone with a rounded clast of similar ooidal packstone/grainstone with micritized ooids and meniscus micrite that must have been rapidly lithified and eroded during storms.

2. Intraclasts

Peloidal skeletal (benthic foraminifera Dicyclina, alveolinids) grainstone with an angular clasts of packstone with miliolids probably deriving from adjacent restricted and low energy lagoon (Upper Cretaceous).

3. Intraclasts

Clast of wackestone/calci-mudstone with planktonic foraminifera within a deposit of similar globotruncanids and Inoceramus probably eroded in basinal setting during sediment gravity flows (Upper Cretaceous).
