- Mica- schist, gneiss, and saccharoid marble are typical of this class. - "Geology", James Geikie.
- Saccharoid marble is one of the fine varieties: it frequently contains flakes of mica. - "Geology", James Geikie.
- Thus in the environs of St. Martin, near St. Paul de Fenouillet, the chalky limestone becomes more crystalline and saccharoid as it approaches the granite, and loses all trace of the fossils which it previously contained in abundance. - "The Student's Elements of Geology", Sir Charles Lyell.
