Examples of non-foliated metamorphic rocks are quartzite and marble.
Nonfoliated metamorphic rocks such as marble and quartzite derived their metamorphism more from heat than from directional pressure. Foliations form at right angles to intense directional pressures. Nonfoliated metamorphic rocks like quartzite and marble are mainly single-mineralic in composition, and would therefore not tend to display layering.
Quartzite, marble, hornfels, and granulite are examples of unfoliated metamorphic rocks.
Some examples of foliated rocks include slate, phyllite, schist, and gneiss. Amphibolite can be either foliated or nonfoliated. Examples of nonfoliated rocks include anthracite coal, hornfels, serpentinite, soapstone, quartzite, marble, and metaconglomerate.
Metamorphic rocks are formed through the process of metamorphism. Some examples of metamorphic rocks are gneiss, slate, schist, marble and anthracite.

What are some rocks that can change into a metamorphic rock
Schist, gneiss, slate, and phyllite are examples of foliated metamorphic rock. Slate--fine grained foliated metamorphic rock. Schist--medium grained foliated metamorphic rock. Gneiss--coarse grained foliated metamorphic rock.
what are some uses for metamorphic rocks
Metamorphic rocks are catagorized into two main types: foliated and non-foliated. Three examples of foliated metamorphic rocks are gniess, slate and schist. Some non-foliated rocks include marble, amphibolite and quartzite. Generally, metamorphic rock, and the metamorphic processes can be divided into three categories: regional, contact, and cataclastic.
Sedimentary rocks: Metamorphic rocks
Igneous rocks - rocks formed from molten rock of the mantle Sedimentary rocks - rocks found in streams Metamorphic rocks - rocks changed by the effects of heat and pressure
because if the metamorphic rocks are big they will shrink
Some metamorphic rocks are slate and marble.
because a metamorphic rock is made up of different rocks.
Metamorphic rocks are igneous or sedimentary rocks that have been transformed by great heat or pressure caused by movement in the Earth's crust.Examples include schist, gneiss, and slate
The minerals that made metamorphic rocks are sillimanite, kyanite, staurolite, andalusite, and some garnet.
Some metamorphic rocks have economic uses because they are sold to consumers for profit. This is true for rocks like slate and marble.
Some of metamorphic rocks do have fossils in them ,a lot of them do. Love, Dierra Arnold , 8 year old :)))
It is used many different ways. It could be used for buildings and roofs. Some examples of metamorphic rock include marble, slate and quartzite.-Don't ask me how to say it!
Igneous and some metamorphic rocks.
Foliated: gneiss, slate, schist, phyllite. Non-Foliated: quartzite, marble.

That they have undergone some form of change. For more information on metamorphic rocks please see the related question.
Some metamorphic rock has foliation, the banding in the rock
Well there are mostly Metamorphic Rocks in Central Park, some may come off as Igneous Rocks but i can almost guarantee you its a Metamorphic Rock.
