Historical Examples of psammite
It seems to me to be a clayey sandstone (Psammite) penetrated by silica.
The ranges were composed of a Psammite, which was frequently baked, probably by neighbouring out-bursts of igneous rock.
The prevailing rock was talc-schiste, alternating with layers of psammite.
