Sedimentary > Carbonate > Limestone (Bed)The Anastasia Formation, named by Sellards (1912), is composed of interbedded sands and coquinoid limestones. The most recognized facies of the Anastasia sediments is an orangish brown, unindurated to moderately indurated, coquina of whole and fragmented mollusk shells in a matrix of sand often cemented by sparry calcite.
Unconsolidated > Coarse-detrital > SandSands occur as light gray to tan and orangish brown, unconsolidated to moderately indurated, unfossiliferous to very fossiliferous beds.
