chemical weathering in the source area was very effective, or, that the transport path was very long (multicyclicity). In the case of a sandstone that contains abundant feldspars on the other hand we may assume that the source area was relatively close, and that chemical weathering was less intense. The degree of rounding of sand grains may also be an indicator of transport history (rounding of grains also distinguishing mark when compared to igneous rocks). The sand particles in a sandstone are usually cemented together by calcite, silica (quartz), iron oxide and clays (either single or in combination). 
SHALE OR MUDSTONE consists of consolidated mud (clay and other fine particles), and comprises about 60-70% of the sedimentary rocks on earth.
