Leopardite, also known as oncolite is sedimentary structures composed of oncoids, which are layered structures formed by cyanobacterial growth. This type of growth refers to photosynthesis and actually produces oxygen. Oncoids often form around a central nucleus such as a shell fragment. This stone usually forms in warm waters.
