Sedimentary rocks containing non-carbonate salts. The term 'evaporite' is more strictly a genetic term and sometimes these can be formed through other means. A nonclastic sedimentary rock composed primarily of minerals produced from a saline solution as a result of extensive or total evaporation of the water. Examples include gypsum, anhydrite, rock salt, and various nitrates and borates. The term sometimes includes rocks developed by metamorphism or transport of other evaporites.
