Title: Secondary Salt-Dome Materials of Coastal Plain of Texas and Louisiana

Author(s): Marcus A. Hanna (2)


Secondary materials consist of anhydrite (which is residual after salt leaching and which is the primary mineral of gypsum, calcite, and sulphur), gypsum, calcite, sulphur, and minor accessories such as galena and sphalerite. None of these represents original deposition. "Burned" cores of granular gypsum and coarse selenite have changed to satin-spar gypsum. Pseudo-lamination in anhydrite is illustrated. One replacement of selenite by sulphur is discussed and figured.
