    Metamorphic rocks form when heat and pressure transform an existing rock into a new rock. Contact metamorphism occurs when hot magma transforms rock that it contacts. Regional metamorphism transforms large areas of existing rocks under the tremendous heat . Ohemically formed sedimentary rock (3) nonfoliated metamorphic rock (4) foliated metamorphic rock I I The block diagram below shows a portion of the Earth's crust. Letters A, B, C, and D indicate sedimentary layers. Igneous metamorphism Which processes produced rock layer B? (1) subduction and melting (2) uplift and solidification.

    The rock on the left was the sedimentary rock shale. Now it's the metamorphic rock slate. Slate looks very similar to shale, but harder and more platy. The rock on the right is gneiss. The light and dark minerals have separated into bands. Gneiss is produced by higher temperature metamorphism. The original rock was different in both cases.   Metamorphic rock textures • There are five basic metamorphic textures with typical rock types Basic rock texture Metamorphic rocks Name of foliation Slaty Slate and phyllite; slaty cleavage schistose schist schistosity gneissose gneiss gneissosity granoblastic marbles and quartzite hornfelsic hornfels and skarn Some examples.

    Creating understanding how metamorphic rock is formed Adapted by Sherrie Seidensticker, Jeffers Pond Elementary, Prior Lake Minnesota, adapted from the book titled Sticky, Gloopy, Wacky, and Wonderful Experiments by Janice VanCleave's. Metamorphic rocks are classified by their metamorphic grade, which is defined as the maximum temperature and pressure to which the rock was subjected. However, metamorphism is a dynamic process, and a metamorphosed rock may have a very complex history.

Metamorphic, Igneous and Sedimentary Rocks: Sorting Them Out - Geology for Kids | 4/5(2). Metamorphic rock, any rock that results from the alteration of preexisting rocks in response to changing conditions, such as variations in temperature, pressure, and mechanical stress, and the addition or subtraction of chemical components.

The preexisting rocks may be igneous, sedimentary, or other metamorphic rocks. Metamorphic Rocks Greek: meta == change morph == form Summary •. Metamorphism involves changes in mineral assemblage and rock texture and occurs in the solid state as a result of changes in temperature and pressure.

Mechanical deformation and chemical recrystallization are the two processes that affect rock during Size: 2MB. Start studying Metamorphic Rocks: Chapter 7 Book Questions. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools. Read the introduction from a geology book.

Metamorphic rocks are rocks which have changed from one type to another. For example, slate is a metamorphic rock made by clay. Scientists Metamorphic Rock book that heat and pressure are two important elements in changing rocks. The following experiment with aluminum foil will help prove this theory.

Metamorphic rocks started out as some other type of rock, but have been substantially changed from their original igneous, sedimentary, or earlier metamorphic form. Metamorphic rocks form when rocks are subjected to high heat, high pressure, hot mineral-rich fluids or.

Metamorphic rocks start off as some kind of rock. The starting rock can be igneous, sedimentary, or even another metamorphic rock. Heat and/or pressure then change the rock into a metamorphic rock. The change can be physical, chemical, or both. During metamorphism, a rock may change chemically.

Ions move in or out of a mineral. The presence of mineral layers, called foliation, is an important feature for classifying metamorphic rocks. As strain increases, the foliation becomes more intense, and the minerals may sort themselves into thicker layers.

The foliated rock types that form under these conditions are called schist or gneiss, depending on their : Andrew Alden. Rocks: Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary Rocks hold the history of the earth and the materials that will be used to build its future.

Igneous. Igneous Rocks: Charoitite - a purple metamorphic rock dominated by the mineral charoite. It is used as a gem. Shale. Shale The rock that is quickly transforming the energy industry.

metamorphic rocks allows geologists to assess the temperatures and pressures the parent rock encountered. • Knowledge of metamorphic processes and rocks is valuable, because metamorphic minerals and rocks have economic value.

For example, slate and marble are building materials, garnets are used as gemstones. The book discusses the most common metamorphic rock types, their nomenclature, structure and graphical representation of their mineral assemblages. Part I defines basic principles of metamorphism, introduces metamorphic processes, geologic thermometry and barometry and.

“Metamorphic rocks are altered by immense temperature, pressure, or both. Their fabric and texture changes and can keep changing. Even their composition can alter, creating a radically new rock Author: Jamie Jirak.

[Rebecca Faulkner] -- This books presents information on metamorphic rock: what is it, how it forms, how to identify it, and the properties of it.

Metamorphic rocks form deep below Earth's surface. Over thousands of years, they make their way to the surface. Then they are collected for use as building materials, sharpened tools, and even fertilizer. Interesting text and vivid photos engage readers in this fascinating book about metamorphic rocks.

A metamorphic rock used to be some other type of rock, but it was changed inside the Earth to become a new type of rock. The word metamorphism comes from ancient Greek words for “change” (meta) and “form” (morph).
