from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rudite (Latin rudus = rubble) is a clastic sedimentary rock with an average grain size of more than 2 mm. A rudite corresponds to rocks that can be assigned to conglomerates or breccias . The term rudite is mainly used for the classification of clastic limestones , although the otherwise used grain size-dependent terms conglomerate or breccia are also used here.
