Granitic Rocks. Contacts between the plutons and the country rock are concordant (the contacts run parallel to structures such as foliation in the surrounding country rock) and often gradational. The plutons themselves often show a foliation that is concordant with that in the surrounding metamorphic rocks.

Classification of Metamorphic Rocks

Classification of Metamorphic Rocks

+

As with igneous and sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks are classified on the basis of texture (grain size, shape, orientation) and mineral, the classifiction of metamorphic rocks is more difficult to get into than with igneous and sedimentary rocks, for a couple of reasons.

Metamorphic Rocks. Gneiss: Gneiss is a highgrade (high heat and pressure) metamorphic rock in which the foliation results from a layering of different mineral groups, which give this rock a banded look of dark (mica, amphibole, and other ironmagnesium minerals) and light (quartz and feldspar) minerals.

Textures and structures of metamorphic rocks. It is a planar element in metamoprhic rocks. It is defined as the parallel arrangement or distribution of minerals which ncludes layring of different mineralogical composition as in a gneiss and parallel arrangement of platy minerals (schistosity) as in a schist, closed spaced fracture (slaty clevage).

What are metamorphic rocks? 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 mineralrich fluids or, more commonly, some combination of these factors.

Pelitic units in the eastern Great Smoky Mountains of the North Carolina Blue Ridge contain rutile grains only in kyanite and higher zones. Adjacent nonpelitic rocks do not contain rutile at kyanite grade but commonly contain sphene. Detrital rutile breaks down at metamorphic grades lower than those at which metamorphic rutile forms. Similarly, pelitic rocks in southeastern Connecticut ...

On modern Earth, convergent plate margins are characterized by metamorphic rocks that record a bimodal distribution of apparent thermal gradients (change in temperature with depth, parameterized in this talk as metamorphic T/P), in the form of paired metamorphic belts, which is attributed to metamorphism near to (low T/P) and away from (high T ...
