Abstract

Characterization of quartz grains by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) has identified several quartz types with different textures and morphologies. By using this method, six types of quartz grains have been identified which are quartz type A, B, C, D, E and F based on textures and morphologies recorded during transportation (mechanical processes). The six types of quartz are the results of two factors which are genetic of quartz and mechanical processes during transportation. As a result of the distribution of this factors, two suites of detrital quartz was discovered which are province I and province II. Province I is characterised by distribution of low energy with poor mechanical processes and consists of recent sediments which was transported by the Sungai Kelantan. The recent sediments showed smooth to moderate rough surface texture with V marks size <2μm or absent and have rounded to angular grain shape. Meanwhile, province II is characterised by moderate to high mechanical processes and sediments are represented by a mixture of recent and relict sediments which is known as marine sub-arkosic components that has been deposited since 5000 cal. yr. BP. The marine sub-arkosic components undergone some excessive mechanical processes that produces rough surfaces textures, V marks structure with size <2μm to >2μm, high abrasion on the surface of quartz and rounded to nearly spherical morphology.
