siltstone definitions

WordNet (r) 3.0 (2005)

n
1: a fine-grained sandstone of consolidated silt

Merriam Webster's

noun Date: circa 1920 a rock composed chiefly of silt hardened by heat, pressure, or cementation

Britannica Concise

Hardened sedimentary rock that is composed primarily of angular silt-sized particles (see silt) and that is not laminated or easily split into thin layers. Siltstones, which are hard and durable, occur in thin layers rarely thick enough to be classified as formations. They are intermediate between sandstones and shales but are not as common as either.

Oxford Reference Dictionary

n. rock of consolidated silt.
