Quartz cementation in Cambrian sandstones on the background of their burial history (Polish part of the East European Craton)

Magdalena Sikorska, Jolanta Pacześna


Cathodoluminescence (CL) study detected presence of two phases of quam cement. Comparison of total subsidence curves with established crystallization temperature of quartz cement, and with thermal palaeogradient indicated that the main stage (second phase) of silicification began during Silurian at the depth of approximately 2 km. This process took place in the temperature range of 90-130°C.
