|Figure 5-4. A:Horizontal stylolite in a Mississippian bioclastic wackestone. Columns of the stylolite penetrate overlying fine laminae (black arrows). The left side of the large column is sutured, suggesting that horizontal compression modified this stylolite by moving the upper block to the right after vertical compression had caused formation of a stylolite. B: High magnification view of area in A indicated with red arrow. Small arrows point to individual interpenetrations along the side of the vertical column.
