Excerpt: .and carbon; and, although not more than a foot in thickness, it contains so considerable a quantity of iron and argentiferous copper pyrites as to be worth working as an ore, whence it has received the well-known name of Kupferscbiq/ er, or copper slate. This bituminous schist is also remarkable as containing, in great abundance, the nearly perfect fossil remains of a large number of extinct species of fish. By The bituminous schist is succeeded by other beds more entirely argillaceous; and these are covered up by a compact limestone, which is the Zechstein, properly so called, and which rarely attains a thickness of more than twenty or thirty yards. The lower bed of the Zechstein is called Rauwaclce, and consists of a hard but cellular magnesian limestone, abounding in long, irregular, and narrow cavities, which are most numerous when the bed attains a considerable thickness, but are almost obliterated in the thinner and more compact portions. To the Rauwacke succeeds a fetid limestone called Stin/cstein, which is a compact or granulated rock, of a blackish-brown or greenish colour, and extremely bituminous, giving out an offensive odour when struck or rubbed. Towards the upper part the bed is marly, and passes into a greyish, bluish, or greenish clay, well known under the name of lettm, and this often contains rolled fragments of dolomite and crystals of gypsum. In the zechstein and the beds associated with it, there are found occasionally several minerals, and, amongst the rest, white crystallized carbonate of lime, crystallized sulphate of lime or gypsum, quartz, and mica. Both the sulphuret and carbonate of copper, also, occur together with galena in mineral veins traversing the formation. The very extensive. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781230105673

Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1844 Excerpt: . . . CHAPTER III. ESTABLISHMENT OF THE SILURIAN SYSTEM BY MR. MCRCHISON. THE LOWER SILURIAN ROCKS. ORDER OF SUPERPOSITION OF THE SILDRIAN ROCKS I Have had occasion, more than once, in speaking of the rocks of Wales, to make use of the term Silurian, as applied to formations of a certain date. It will be proper here to give a brief account of the history of that name, and the nature and extent of the strata which, in England, are designated by it. Up to the year 1830, Geologists were not aware of the existence of any complete series of stratified rocks below the sandy beds which underlie the mountain limestone formation, and which were called old red sandstone; and although there were certain limestones of greater antiquity than any of those of the carboniferous system, still no regularly deposited and continuous formations had yet been described. 7. Upper Ludlow shale 6. Aymestry or Ludlow limestone Ludlow series 5. Lower Ludlow shale 4. Wenlock limestone. 3. Wenlock shale 2. Caradoc sandstone I. Llandeilo flags. . Upper Silurian. Wenlock series J Lower Silurian. The cause of this appears to have been, that the true and full sequence of the older rocks is very rarely exhibited; and, in the absence of such distinct knowledge, it was impossible to make out the extremely complicated structure of those parts of England, Wales, and the continent of Europe, in which an interrupted series is exhibited. The rocks of Devonshire and Cornwall, for instance, were assumed to be of the earliest period, because in contact with granite, and presenting the peculiar structure of the oldest rocks in their numerous slaty beds; but some of their fossils were more like the fossils of the mountain limestone than those derived from many well known fossiliferous slates and l. . .
