The grains of the parabolic dunes?

My text book says that parabolic dunes consist of consolidated limestone grains, but I wondered if they have sand grains too, so I googled this issue and found that they consist of sands, but I am still perplexed, do parabolic dunes have both sand and consolidated limestone grains or they only contain one type of grains? And do they form exactly as other types of dunes (barchan dunes for example)?
