the answer is shale.
== == Shale--sedimentary rock composed of clay and silt particles showing layering. Mudstone--sedimentary rock composed of clay and silt particles which don't show layering.
Claystone is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of clay particles.
This is Shale, a Sedimentary rock.
Clay is actually a description of sediment of a specific particle size. As such clay is not necessarily a rock. However when compacted and cemented clay forms claystone which is a sedimentary rock.
Sedimentary rock is composed of a variety of sediments, ranging from clay sized particles to boulders, which have been compacted and cemented together. Chemical sedimentary rocks can be principally composed of precipitated calcite, gypsum or halite. Organic sedimentary rock can consist of shells or partially decomposed plants.
shale is the answer
Argillaceous rock, is sedimentary rock composed of clay minerals
Slate is formed by compression of clay and silt.
Yes. It is made out if clay. The difference between just clay and shale is that the shale consists of compacted clay. Because of compaction, the clay particles (which are flaky) tend to align themselves resulting in varying degrees of fissility. If shale is even more compacted, it will turn into a slate, which is no longer a sedimentary but a metamorphic rock.
Clay is composed of sediment, but it is not a sedimentary rock. Rock is solid and hard; clay is soft and malleable. Clay can be baked into bricks, but even then, bricks are not quite as hard as rocks are.
It's called conglomerate.
No. Chalk is a variant of limestone, composed primarily of calcite. It is a carbonate sedimentary rock. Shale is a laminated sedimentary rock composed of silt and clay sized particles of mostly silicate mainerals. It is a clastic sedimentary rock.
Claystone is a sedimentary rock formed from clay deposits. Another sedimentary rock that forms from clay deposits is shale.
Yes, slate is clastic. Chalk is usually considered as a bio-clastic sedimentary rock. The sedimentary rock is composed mainly of the clay minerals.
Claystone formed from clay sediment is a sedimentary rock so in effect clay is a sedimentary rock.
A sedimentary rock formed from clay deposits is shale.
a sedimentary rock
The sedimentary rock is many pieces of things like sand and shells compacted and cemented into a rock
Clastic Sedimentary Rocks.
