It is made from the skeletal remains of planktonic organisms.


What are some sediment rocks?

There are organic rocks, like Limestone, and clastic (composed of fragments), like Sandstone. Within these groups there are others, like coal is organic and siltstone is clastic, but even within limestone and sandstone, there are further categories. There's oolitic limestone, chalk and 'shelly' limestones; and arkose, desert sandstone, orthoquartzite (generic sandstone), and others. Conglomerate is an interesting one, if you are after a rock that is not 'normal'.


What were used to build the pyramid of Giza?

The primary material was oolitic limestone which was found in abundance on the plataeu where the pyramids were built.

Are sedimentary rocks formed by the weathering of other rocks?

Clastic sedimentary rocks are formed by the weathering, erosion, deposition, compaction and cementation of other rocks. Chemical sedimentary rocks however may be precipitated directly from saturated solutions (examples incldue the evaporitic rocks and certain types of carbonates such as oolitic limestones). Some other sedimentary rocks may be biogenic in origin (such as the linmestones that are formed of coral reefs).
