Texture. Shale typically exhibits varying degrees of fissility, breaking into thin layers, often splintery and usually parallel to the otherwise indistinguishable bedding plane because of the parallel orientation of clay mineral flakes. Non fissile rocks of similar composition but made of particles smaller than 0.06 mm are described as mudstones (1/3 to 2/3 silt particles) or claystones (less

Carbonatite is a real stranger in the igneous world. It can be volcanic or plutonic, but the most striking thing is its composition. Unlike other igneous rocks which are mostly composed of silicate minerals, this one is compositionally close to limestone and marble, hence the name which refers to its carbonate composition.Such exotic igneous rocks have their very own classification principles.

A typical soil is about 50% solids (45% mineral and 5% organic matter), and 50% voids (or pores) of which half is occupied by water and half by gas. The percent soil mineral and organic content can be treated as a constant (in the short term), while the percent soil water and gas content is considered highly variable whereby a rise in one is simultaneously balanced by a reduction in the other.
