"Minerals"

White sand made up of shells upon which rests carious rock,
then prismatic feldspar between these and former ones, hard white rock with
yellow spots. A heap of white balls beneath white sand.
Same process now going on shore, living iron found in it.
Sand white from decomposition of feldspar. In places
every rock is covered with pistiform concretions. In places impossible to tell
whether it is Breccia of modern or older days. Lower
beds of white sand become filled with large boulders of lower rocks.
Beneath this comes a line of another stratum, more
soily and contains large and more numerous shells.
A regular bed of oysters remains attached to the rocks.
