Analyses of microscopic structures and penetrative finite strain direction in the oolitic
limestone of the Ambar Formation accommodated shortening parallel to the trend of the Swabi Synclinorium and Shewa Anticlinorium.

The corresponding SEM images (Figure 4) confirmed that the hematite ore consisted mainly of scaly, acicular, cryptocrystalline, and metasomatic textures, with a sand consolidation structure (rarely, with an oolitic
From the oldest to youngest the strata include (Poldsaar & Ainsaar 2014): (i) glauconitic sandstones and limestones of the Toila Formation (Billingen and Volkhov regional stages), (ii) interbedded sandy limestones of the Pakri Formation (Kunda Regional Stage), (iii) a distinct iron oolitic
limestone bed of the Kandle Formation (Aseri Regional Stage) and (iv) relatively thick-bedded and hard bioclastic limestones of the Vao Formation (Lasnamagi and Uhaku regional stages).
* The discovery of a large formation of oolitic
limestone in Indiana leads to huge industry growth there.
The island features white oolitic
sand beaches and showers to rinse off the salty water.
Extensive banks of oolitic
sand, seagrass meadows, mangroves, and tidal creeks provide nursery areas and feeding grounds for sharks, conch, sea cucumbers, spiny lobsters, and marine turtles.
The shallow oolitic
limestone platform that makes up the Caicos Banks is an ideal habitat for these organisms.
These sediments show lateral and vertical transition to shallow marine sandstone, conglomerate, shale, marl and oolitic
29,500 BCE At the heart of the collection of the Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna is one of the most famous Paleolithic representations of the body--a four-inch-tall oolitic
limestone carving that is controversially referred to as Venus.
Helmut Pristacz (University of Vienna, Austria, and University of Tokyo, Japan) and coauthors studied synthetic turquoise from the Natural History Museum in Vienna, Austria, and found that it had an oolitic
microstructure composed of a fibrous amorphous phase (related to the high-pressure berlinite structure) together with natural turquoise (presumably used as a starting material) and synthetic turquoise.
The centipedes were observed under various natural cover objects (e.g., fallen logs and oolitic
limestone boulders) and discarded materials (e.g., plywood and carpet), many of which housed multiple (from 3 to 6) specimens.
