About Sedimentary stone  |   Nunavut Map | Return

Sanikiluaq is a long thin island group found in Hudson Bay. Sanikiluaq is part of the new territory of  Nunavut , a self-governing Inuit region in northern Canada . 

The stone there is sedimentary, formed from layers of sediment compressing. 
All stone found in Sanikiluaq are layered, some more subtly than others. A dark patch in the stone indicates  it is metamorphosing.  

Most of the rock is limestone, which is generally lime green in colour, but Charcoal grey and black pieces can also be found as a result of carbon in the stone.
