You know perfectly well! Or don't you? LOL!

Do you really want me to describe the process? Or are you just playing 'devil advocate"
You are very clever ( smart) enough to do such?

I missed that! Please could you link me up with approx time and relink the source? (pretty please ;-).

You realise limestone is sedimentary rock ? (yes?)
you realise igneous and metamorphic has definitive signatures ? (yes?)

If not, stick to "The Aliens did it" on Discovery Channel (or other wacko viewing).

Identify specifically the (which) "andesite outcrops" !
Yes there are some ,but WHAT specifically are you talkin' about?

Some volcanic tuff with other ingredients ( you will want the formula no doubt?)
ABSOLUTELY PROVEN in some small sample sizes!


Still luvz you! mate!
