Under these conditions the deformation was brittle, as indicated by extension veins and by foraminifera that show no measurable distortional strain. Nevertheless, the limestone is often tightly folded; the folding mechanism combined dissolution of limestone along stylolites subparallel to fold axes with deposition of sparry calcite in extension ...

Is limestone a hard rock? - Quora

Answer (1 of 4): Limestone is a soft, easily workable rock that is comprised of at least 50% calcite, aragonite, and/or dolomite. Rocks don't technically have any concrete MOHS hardness as they are mixtures of minerals. Minerals do have defined hardnesses though. Calcite has a MOHS hardness of 3...

Solnhofen limestone | Fossil Wiki - Fandom

The Solnhofen limestone is a Jurassic Konservat-Lagerstätte that preserves a rare assemblage of fossilized organisms, some of which, such as sea jellies, don't ordinarily fossilize at all. Others, like the early Archaeopteryx are preserved in such detail that they are among the most famous and most beautiful fossils in the world. The Solnhofen beds lie in the German state of …

The Brittle-Ductile Transition in Porous Limestone Imaged by X …

Our observations showed that strain localization may develop at relatively small axial strains of ~1%, in both the brittle faulting and transitional regimes. In Majella limestone (porosity = 31%), the localized deformation involved both shear and compaction. Compaction bands were only observed in less cemented samples of Leitha limestone.

Brittle creep of the limestone is associated with dilatancy and the development of a shear fault at final strains lower than 2 %, as previously observed for other brittle materials. Semi-brittle creep leads to inelastic compaction accommodated by crystal plasticity and then to dilatancy likely due to the nucleation and propagation of cracks at ...

The theory is that the dolomites are more brittle then the limestone, and tectonic events which deform (i.e., ductile behavior) the limestone will fracture the dolomite (i.e., brittle behavior), creating super-K intervals.
