Breccia in Titus Canyon

Breccia in Titus Canyon

Detailed Description

 

This massive exposure of limestone breccia occurs in the cliffs along lower Titus Canyon. Angular fragments and blocks of gray limestone are tightly cemented in a matrix of white calcite. The limestone probably broke apart in a fault zone before being cemented by calcite precipitated by groundwater.
