And then whatever water-related experience moved those sediments from their point of origin and deposited them into layers in Gale must have happened quite fast, with the water going away very quickly. The following are listed in order from weak to strong metamorphism: Slate: A fine-grained rock, usually made of metamorphosed fine sediments. People that live in a desert region can easily find rocks on the surface.

The quartz is the most stable mineral, both under chemical and mechanical weathering, and it's not surprising that quartz then is the most common mineral that we find in clastic sedimentary rock.

Sediment: debris of weathered rocks and minerals, as well as dead plants and animals On the basis of cathodoluminescence analysis, however, they conclude that the rims formed by passive cementation into solution voids that formed around echinoderm fragments during diagenesis (Fig. 11.19). Note in this example that grain-size change and paleocurrent vectors indicate that the source area lay to the west of the map area. Fluid effects are especially important during early diagenesis when the fluid-to-grain ratio is high, and during later stages, when dehydration and fracturing are important.

Quartz is abundant because it is extremely durable and very resistant to chemical weathering. Cherts are common but not abundant rocks in the geologic record. Kaolinite is also a product of intense weathering, and it in turn is broken down to release silicon to solution and to produce aluminum oxides and hydroxides.

For rocks with bigger particles, the transformation to a rock comes from cementation that is created by smaller particles that fills the pore spaces between the bigger particles. Most workers agree that it is caused in some way by deformation of hydroplastic or liquefied sediment, but little agreement exists regarding the actual deformation mechanism (although it is probably not slumping in most cases). The exact process or processes by which hummocky crossstratification is formed is, however, still speculative.

These are formed by cooling and solidification of molten magma or lava which escapes through fissures from the interior of the earth. The same is true of deep burial in a subsiding sedimentary basin like the Denver basin on the east flank of the Rockies. This strong interest in sedimentary textures has apparently arisen out of the conviction of many workers that sedimentary texture is a valuable tool for environmental analysis.

Sedimentation means settling from a fluid, either water or air. Magma is made of melted rocks.  (When it is underground it is called magma, when it erupts on the  surface of the earth, it is called lava…. Their movement often results in earthquakes.) Rock Melting. Rocks on Mars Many of the rocks found on Mars are not very different from Earth rocks. When Earth was that old, it was a different place. This is a coarse-grain sandstone which is made up mostly of the mineral quartz.
