Figure 4-2. A large horizontal stylolite in a Mississippian packstone to grainstone with a large area of coarse clear calcite (C). The lesser amount of insoluble residue where the stylolite penetrates the clear calcite (black arrow) may be due to the scarcity of non-carbonate material in that calcite.
