A general statement relate fracturing to tectonic events. In carbonates, the strong influence of diagenetic processes through time is a clue in rock brittle properties acquisition. Indeed,in such host-rock, early cementation developed rapidly after deposition and turn the deposited sediment into a brittle rock, allowing fracture to develop through burial. What we want to show is how these mechanism have to be taken into account when characterizing the fracture pattern in carbonates.
