|Figure 3-6. Skeletal grain (black arrow) cut by a dissolution seam (small red arrows), both of which are in turn cross-cut by a large column of a high-amplitude stylolite (medium red arrows). That high amplitude stylolite is in turn intersected by a thick stylolite (large red arrow) that may have consumed most of the high-amplitude stylolite.
Photomicrograph was taken in plane-polarized light; field of view is 2.4 mm wide. Murfreesboro, Tennessee, U.S.A., Sample ME6-8/A; thin section ME6-8/A. Sample collected by L. Bruce Railsback.
