Following are examples of three metamorphic rocks and a list of their uses.

Marble is a metamorphic rock that is used to make floor tiles, counter tops and it is carved into statues and was used extensively in the building of the Roman Colosseum and other historic buildings.

Slate is another metamorphic rock that is used in buildings for floor and roofing tiles, and it was once used for blackboards.

Quartzite is used as a source of silica; other forms of metamorphic rocks are useful as building components, monuments, counter tops, and facings.
