Sedimentary rock - Sedimentary rock - Siliceous rocks: Those siliceous rocks composed of an exceptionally high amount of crystalline siliceous material, mainly the mineral quartz (especially microcrystalline quartz and fibrous chalcedony) and amorphous opal, are most commonly known as chert.

A wide variety of rock names are applied to cherty rocks reflecting their colour (flint is dark chert. Siliceous Siliceous rocks and prehistory book, any of a group of sedimentary rocks that consist largely or almost entirely of silicon dioxide (SiO2), either as quartz or as amorphous silica and cristobalite; included are rocks that have formed as chemical precipitates and excluded are those of detrital or fragmental origin.

There is no intense dissolution of siliceous remains in the deep ocean. Sediments deposited below the carbonate compensation depth are commonly enriched in silica by removal of the carbonate, sometimes to the point of forming siliceous oozes.

Rock cupules (/ ˈ k j uː p j uː l /) are humanly made depressions on rock surfaces that resemble the shape of an inverse spherical cap or dome. They were made by direct percussion with hand-held hammer-stones, on vertical, sloping or horizontal rock surfaces. Cupules are widely believed to be the world's most common rock art motifs, found in huge numbers in every continent except Antarctica.
