heavy minerals provenance

Rock Provenance by Petrologic Methods ThoughtCo

Heavy Mineral Provenance Besides their three main ingredients (quartz, feldspar, and lithics) sandstones have a few minor ingredients, or accessory minerals, derived from their source rocks. Except for the mica mineral muscovite, they are relatively dense, so they're usually called heavy minerals.
