Abstract

The middle Cambrian Meagher limestone of southwest Montana is characterized by mottled members that are finely crystalline in the tan part and microcrystalline in the dark matrix. As seen in the literature, similar mottled limestones are thought to be an arrest­ed stage in the dolomitization, or alteration of limestones.
