micritization The formation of micrite by the boring into skeletal carbonate particles by cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), and the subsequent precipitation of micrite within the borings. Micritization can also occur if filamentous endolithic algae (i.e. those within the sediment) coat the grain. See MICRITE ENVELOPE.
