Limestone from the Hampton Formation at Ferguson, Iowa, was studied in an effort to determine whether the vertical force of overburden had caused preferential orientation of crystals. Results are insufficient to indicate the extent of recrystallization caused by overburden; there is evidence that there has been horizontal influence also. Petrofabric diagrams are included.
