Parent Category: Geology
Metamorphic rocks are formed from other types of rocks. The original rock is exposed to conditions such as heat or pressure. Carbon turning to diamonds while under extreme pressure is an example of a metamorphic rock.
Geologists categorize rocks into three basic groups, of which sedimentary and metamorphic are two. Igneous is the third. Sedimentary rocks are laid down in layers of sediments such as mud, silt and sand that accumulate and harden over time. Igneous rocks are formed from the solidification of lava or…

Foliation is a geologic term that is used to describe the appearance of metamorphic rocks. Foliated metamorphic rocks such as gneiss display banding and regrouping of its mineral constituents as a result of enormous pressures and heat. The banding forms perpendicularly to the direction of pressure.…
