"Rinded, Iron-Oxide Concretions in Navajo Sandstone

The iron-oxide-rich concretions in the Jurassic Navajo Sandstone in southern Utah are unusual in two fundamental ways. First, they are cemented by iron oxide (Fe2O3, or Fe(OH)3); most other concretions are cemented by silica (SiO2), calcite (CaCO3), dolomite (CaMg(CO3)2), or siderite (FeCO3).

2020-6-11 · Sandstone of south-central Utah, however, contains abundant concre - tions with iron-oxide-cemented rinds. Reducing fluids bleached much of the sandstone that contains these concretions (Beitler et al., 2003), many of the iron-rich concretions are localized at joints (Loope et al., 2010) and the central zones of some concretions contain iron-oxide

Biosignatures in Spheroidal Iron Oxide-Rich Concretions ...

Spheroidal concretions composed of an iron oxide-rich cemented outer rind and a weakly-cemented core of bleached (iron depleted) sandstone are abundant in the Jurassic Navajo Sandstone of the Colorado Plateau. The formation of the spheroidal concretions has been previously described as a result of advective mixing between Fe(II)-rich reducing fluids with oxidizing fluids resulting in the ...
