PREFERRED TERM
Stylolite  
DEFINITION
  • Rough paired surfaces that are indicative of localized stress-induced dissolution under a non-hydrostatic state of stress, and are separated by a clay parting that is believed to be the residuum of the dissolved rock. The orientation of the largest principal normal stress can be determined by the orientation of the asperities (modified from Ebner et al., 2009).
