solution cleavage A spaced, usually disjunctive cleavage which is common in quartzites and limestones. Solution cleavages commonly contain zones of relatively insoluble minerals indicating that pressure solution has operated. Some authorities (e.g. C. McA. Powell, 1979) suggest that the term ‘solution cleavage’ should not be used in descriptions of cleavage as it implies the mode of origin.
