2009-4-6  Identified by particle size, gravel consists of rounded, partially angular, or angular (crushed faces) particles of rock. Gravel size particles usually occur in varying combinations with other particle sizes. Gravel is subdivided into particle size ranges as follows: (Note that particles > (75 mm) 3 inches are cobbles or boulders, as defined in the Glossary of Terms.)
