   Fine grained rock composed of lithified clay making the rock shale. In this close up, taken at the same distance as the last closeup, the rock looks much lighter in color. The only difference is the angle of the reflected light.
   On the other hand, it is easier to see in this image that there is no "grit," sand or coarse silt in the rock.
