In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Asbestos bodies are asbestos fibers that have been coated with an iron-rich, proteinaceous concretion.
- Coal balls are a particular type of carbonate concretion that has been long known for the superb preservation of plant material.
- The mudstones are dark and contain calcareous concretions, the latter brecciated and with calcareous veins.
- The authors show that early concretion growth prevented collapse and infilling of voids in the organisms, in the time-interval between organic decay and precipitation of calcite.
- Coal balls are concretions of permineralized peat formed in place.
- They sometimes are found together with dolostone concretions, barite nodules, or phosphatic nodules.
- The biomineralized shells of trilobites, gastropods and brachiopods are preserved within the concretions.
- The bodies of many smaller concretions are surrounded by a shell of fine-grained pyrite.
- Recently, one of us saw a bin of silicified barite concretion fragments in a Utah rock shop that were being sold as cycad specimens.
- Large chert concretions appear 8 m above the base of the unit at Muller Canyon whereas at Reno Draw they do not appear until 18 m above the base.
- Most specimens are contained in concretions and are preserved only because the concretions formed around them.
- These are found rarely in large septarian concretions in the Huron Shale in north-central Ohio near Milan, in Huron County.
- To make matters worse, the concretions can be associated with cycads.
- Septarian concretions, some as much as 6 feet in diameter, occur in the Mancos Shale north of the town of Grand Junction where the land slopes upward toward the base of the Book Cliffs.
- This spike has been previously regarded as diagenetic, as the samples analysed correspond to limestone concretions.
- The barite and calcite form excellent euhedral crystals in concretions within the Cretaceous-age Mancos Shale.
- A nodule is a type of concretion with a rough and knobby surface.
- At certain levels, carbonate-rich beds are present, inside which decimetre-scale hard calcareous concretions develop.
- Preservation of non-biomineralized tissues within concretions occurs through most of the Phanerozoic, from the Upper Cambrian to the Recent.
- Eventually, the sandstone slowly eroded away and the hard, erosion-resistant concretions were left on the ground.
English has borrowed many of the following foreign expressions of parting, so you’ve probably encountered some of these ways to say goodbye in other languages.
