The classic sedimentary rocks and the carbonate sedimentary rocks we'll finish by just mentioning one other type, evaporates evaporates are sedimentary rocks that are formed of salts. The individual sand grains are glued together by minerals such as calcite (calcium carbonate) and hematite (iron oxide) that are precipitated (see chemical sedimentary rocks) out of ground water that travels between the sand grains.

An important observation based on this data is that all carbonate sediments have sufficient porosity and permeability to qualify as reservoir rocks with modifications, the dunham approach can be used to characterize the petrophysical properties of carbonate rocks.
