The Sandstone Family of Rocks

2012-3-21 · Green sandstone is a variety full of grains of glauconite which impart a general greenish color to the rock. Sometimes these rocks are very friable, indeed scarcely coherent, as in the Cretaceous formations of the Atlantic border, especially in New Jersey. They are then called greensand or, inappropriately, greensand-marl.
