  1. Conglomerate Rock – A Complete Guide

  2. Introduction • In this knowledge-rich series of knowing rocks, we are going to know Conglomerate rocks, which is a kind of sedimentary rocks and have some commercial values in different industries, particularly in construction businesses.

  3. What Type of Rock Is Conglomerate  • In geology, conglomerate considers as a Clastic Rock. Here, clastic derived from the Clasts. The gravel-size pebbles, which are greater than 2 mm in diameter termed as Clasts. • When the Matrix made of sand, silt, and clay particles and filled the gaps between clasts and also glue the clasts objects together, the formation of conglomerate takes place.

  4. What Is Conglomerate Made Of?

  5. Where Are Conglomerate Rocks Found? • We know the formation of conglomerate rocks takes place in the areas where an abundant supply of water from various water bodies is possible. Those water bodies may be • Lakes • Rivers • Sea Beaches with Strong Currents/Waves • Glaciers

  6. Conglomerate Rock Texture, Classification, and Types • Thanks to its clastic nature, conglomerate rocks have clastic texture. The classification of conglomerate rocks depends on its clasts compositions and compositions of the matrix content.

  7. Conglomerate Classification According to Percentage of Cement

  8. Conglomerate Classification Based on Resistance 

  9. Conglomerate Classification Based on Clasts and Cement Composition

  10. Conglomerate Classification Based on Variation in Parent Material

  11. Conglomerate Classification Based on Size and Composition • Based on grain size and clasts size, we can classify conglomerate rocks in the following categories and types. The coarseness and fineness of rocks greatly depend on size and compositions of the mineral grains/clasts embedded in the rocks. Conglomerate Classification According to Grain Size

  12. According to Clasts Size

  13. How the Formation of Conglomerate Rocks Takes Place? Deep Water Marine Environment Shallow Water Marine Environment

  14. Glacial Environment Alluvial Environment Fluvial Environment

  15. What Are The Uses of Conglomerate Rock? • In Construction of Historic Buildings • In Preparation of Construction of Aggregates • As Dimension Stones • As Decorative Material in interior and Exterior Application • As Architectural Stones for Curbing • As Antiquity Material • In Other Commercial Applications

  16. Conclusion • In the series of identifying various rocks and natural stones at World of Stones, USA, today we have explored some geological and industrial aspects of conglomerate rocks such as meaning, uses, facts, properties, and colors. • However, out of several suppliers of natural rocks, the World of Stones USA is an excellent choice for natural stones, particularly for exterior applications in the construction industry. If you have found our series interesting, keep the reading of blogs at World of Stones continue.
