Figure 5-5. A: Horizontal stylolite in a compacted Mississippian bioclastic-oolitic grainstone.
One column is at an oblique angle to stylolite (red arrow). B: High magnification view of the
column at the red arrow in A. This column appears to have been longer, to have broken, and
then to have been partly consumed by the rest of the stylolite.
