Abstract

The formation preserves siliceous sediments at progressive (generally with depth) diagenetic stages. The chemistry of most diatomite is controlled by three primary phases (biogenic silica, carbonate, and detrital clay) and several subsidiary phases (organic material, apatite, pyrite, and detrital minerals including quartz and plagioclase). -from Authors
