    • 1919, Walter Rosenhain, Glass Manufacture[1], page 34:
      These deposits of sand have always been formed by the disintegration of a siliceous rock, and the fragments so formed have been sifted and transported by the agency of water, being finally deposited by a river either in the sea (marine deposits) or in lakes (lacustrine deposits), while the action of water, either during transport or after deposition, has frequently worn the individual particles into the shape of rounded grains.
