The history of soil classification and description has been described by Child (1986). Early attempts to divide soil into different categories used laboratory testing, typically particle size distribution.
Sedimentary rock Sedimentary rock stone size: Particle size is an important textural parameter of clastic rocks because it supplies information on the conditions of transportation, sorting, and deposition of the sediment and provides some clues to the history of events that occurred at the depositional site prior to final induration.

2012-08-30· The 65% total incombustible content required for intakes was based on the measured size of coal dust found in mines during the 1920’s and the amount of rock dust required to inert that size of coal in full-scale experimental mine tests (Nagy, 1981).
All particle size analysis instruments provide the ability to measure and report the particle size distribution of the sample. There are very few applications where a single value is appropriate and representative. The modern particle scientist often chooses to describe the entire size distribution as opposed to just a single point on it.
2014-05-21· 2.2.4 stone Size Distribution Real rocks contain a distribution of stone sizes, and often the stone size distribution is multi-modal. The best way of understanding the effect is to consider the variable admixture of grains of two sizes (Figure 2.4). The porosity of the mixture of stone sizes is reduced below that for 100% of each size.
2017-08-15· 3 1.3.1 Choice of Independent Variable The merits of using radius r, diameter D, or some other dimension L, as the independent variable of a size distribution depend on the application. In radiative transfer applications, r prevails in the literature probably because it
2011-02-03· The protolith can be either an igneous rock or a sedimentary rock, as just indicated. The protolith could also be a previously metamorphosed rock. Ultimately however, if you go far enough back into the history of a metamorphic rock you would find that the first protolith was either a sedimentary or igneous rock.
Sieve analysis is used to determine the stone size distribution of coarse-grained soils. For the particle size distribution of fine-grained soils, a hydrometer analysis is used. Particle size distribution is represented on a semi logarithmic plot of % finer (ordinate, arithmetic scale) versus particle size (abscissa, logarithm scale).

Tune into this video as Dr. Binocs explains you different types of rocks. The detail video break up is given below. 00:47 Types of Rocks 00:59
The size of the individual rock sample examined at the surface is rather small because it is limited by the size of drill cuttings and rock strength. Weak rocks, ones without cement, are often reduced to original detrital stone size by the drilling process, making it difficult to determine rock type, but still possible to determine lithology.
