A metamorphic rock formed from Basalt is Schist. a.k.a. Green Schist
actually, it truly depends on the type of rock the metamorphic rock formed from. in other words, if it formed from a rock that held basalt in it, the rock has basalt in it. remember that a metamorphic rock can be formed by more than two different types of rock (such as metamorphic quartz, slate, "fool's gold", plus granite). it does not matter which class the metamorphic rock formed from (but if a m. rock such as m. quartz, there is more likely a chance of finding a trace of basalt), as long as it formed from two different class of rock (this does not always apply, for there can be a metamorphic rock made from two or more metamorphic rocks). i would get into geodes...... but that's another answer. :)

Basalt is an igneous rock.
No. Basalt is an extrusive igneous rock.
Basalt is not a metamorphic rock but an igneous rock, usually dark-colored. It is the most common type of volcanic rock on Earth.
Basalt is an extrusive igneous rock.
No. It is an Igneous Rock.
Basalt is an igneous rock, but not all igneous rock is basalt. Marble is an example of a metamorphic rock.
Basalt is a rock. It is formed from lava usually, but not always, from a volcano.
Sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic are types of rock (you can look up definitions, if you want). Basalt is a type of igneous rock.
Basalt is a homogenous igneous rock. Gneiss is a foliated metamorphic rock.
A metamorphic rock can be formed from any of the three rock types--igneous, sedimentary, and even metamorphic.
Phyllite is an example of a metamorphic rock which may have formed from slate, another metamorphic rock.
Marble is the metamorphic rock formed from limestone. =)
Quartzite is a metamorphic rock formed from sandstone.
Marble is a metamorphic rock formed from limestone.
The metamorphic rock formed from Slate is Phyllite
Metamorphic rock can be formed from all three rock types: sedimentary, igneous, and even other metamorphic rock.
basalt is an igneous rock. Igneous is one of the three main types of rock, (igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary) and means, "formed from fire" It includes any rock that cooled directly from a magma or lava state.
