      The famous red rocks in and around Sedona are, for the most part, the same layers that make up the upper walls of the Grand Canyon. Even the formation names used between the two areas are similar and the reason for this is that it was Dr. Eddie McKee who first recognized and named the formations in Oak Creek Canyon. The million year old Redwall Limestone is one of the most prominent features of the Grand Canyon. Its features: • Diverse and long history over the last million years. • Magnificent cliffs and red walls. • Composed of ~% pure limestone, ~95% of which is biologically formed in the presence of organisms.

The Redwall (and underlying Muav Limestone) are the chief cave-forming units of the Canyon, with small to large entrances visible from nearly any rim viewpoint. The Redwall Limestone has a gray color, but almost everywhere it is stained red by iron oxide washed from the red, iron-rich layers above (Supai and Hermit Formations).

The fascinating history and character of Grand Canyon’s thickest limestone - the Redwall What makes the Redwall Limestone a unique and important stratigraphic unit in the Grand Canyon. This is just one of the questions asked and answered in a new guide to the Redwall presented in slide format by AZGS geologist Brian Gootee.

The geology of Arizona began to form in the Precambrian. Igneous and metamorphic crystalline basement rock may have been much older, but was overwritten during the Yavapai and Mazatzal orogenies in the Proterozoic.

The Grenville orogeny to the east caused Arizona to fill with sediments, shedding into a shallow sea. Limestone formed in the sea was metamorphosed by mafic intrusions.

The Great Unconformity is a famous gap in the stratigraphic record, as Arizona. The Redwall Limestone in northern Arizona was deposited on a cratonic shelf durin the Mississippig - an Period.

This shelf was subject to at least four marine transgressions and regressions. The. FIGURE —Sample plots from four vertical outcrop faces of the Thunder Springs Member of the Redwall Limestone in Arizona, showing distribution of chert, carbonate rock, and associated fossils.
