About MarlstoneHide

A lithified marl.

i. An indurated rock of about the same composition as marl. It has a blocky subconchoidal fracture, and is less fissile than shale. Synonym: marlite

ii. A term originally applied by Bradley (1931) to slightly magnesian calcareous mudstones or muddy limestones in the Green River Formation of the Uinta Basin, UT, but subsequently applied to associated rocks (including conventional shales, dolomites, and oil shales) whose lithologic characters are not readily determined. Picard (1953) recommended abandonment of the term as used in the Uinta Basin.
