(Size: 22.5x14.5cms.), Glauconiec is believed to be an excellent indicator of the Palaeo-environments, bathymetric conditions and orogenic events. It has also been used a correlation tool in stratigraphic studies and has also assisted the geologists in tracing diastem or unconformities. In the last decades much attention has been paid to use glauconite for K-Ar and Rb-Sr dating of glauconitic bearing sedimentary horizons. Thus, glauconite has attracted a number of leading mineralogists, stratigraphers, oil geologists, soil scientists and sedimentologists in the world because of its vital properties and potential use in solving many geological problems.
