Specimens of conglomerate with siderite pebbles found in Wigan, Lancashire, UK and formed in the Carboniferous period. Conglomerates are coarse grained clastic sedimentary rocks composed of a substantial proportion of rounded to well-rounded gravel clasts set in a matrix. They were laid down in a high energy environment, either fluvial, alluvial or shallow marine. The roundness of the clasts can be an indicator of the transport distance or the action of sustained erosion. These samples of conglomerate contain siderite pebbles. Siderite is a iron carbonate mineral and is a valuable iron mineral due to its purity. It has a white streak and a vitreous lustre. Specimens are supplied in 4" x 3" labelled card trays.
