This is a fossiliferous limestone. The limestone is not grain supported and has a near uniformly micrite cement matrix. Allochems constitute about 40 percent of slide area. These characteristics classify the limestone as a wackestone. Allochems are essentially 100 percent bioclasts. This percentage and degree of sorting indicate that this limestone is classified as a sparse biomicrite. Bioclasts are nearly all a singular genus of planispiral foraminifera (<95 percent), rarely other bioclasts including bryozoans, brachiopods, enchinoderms, and bivalves are present. Foraminifera fossils have a maximum dimension of 3.5 mm. Micritic envelopes are readily visible on foraminifera but often absent on other fossil types. Secondary, mostly cryptocrystalline quartz, is present but occupies far less than 1 percent of slide area. Extant voids are rare at around 1 percent of slide area. Most extant voids seem to form in association with the dissolution of fossils. Iron hydroxide and hematite staining is also present in small patches that constitute less than 1 percent of slide area. Fossils foraminifera are readily visible in the hand sample. Lithification appears to have occurred prior to significant compaction.
