CONT

Au début de la diagenèse, un plissement par flambage et une déshydratation ont produit une dissolution par pression et un transfert de masse diffus (raccourcissement de 40 %) qui ont provoqué une perte de silice et une accumulation de sphalérite et de galène dans les plans de clivage, donnant à la roche un aspect rayé.
