Types of Metamorphic Rocks

Check out the Types of Metamorphic Rocks here. Metamorphic word comes from the Greek words “meta” and “morph”. Meta means change and morph means form. These rocks have changed form due to heat and pressure. Metamorphic rocks make up a large part of the Earth's crust. They are classified by texture and properties. They are formed when other types of rock layers above them are subjected to high temperatures and pressure. Metamorphic Rocks can also form from tectonic processes such as continental collisions, which cause horizontal pressure, friction and distortion and also in cases where rock is heated up by the intrusion of hot molten rock called magma or lava from the Earth's interior. The study of Metamorphic Rocks provides information about the temperatures and pressures that occur at great depths within the Earth's crust. You can also compare rocks from Igneous Rocks and Fossil Rocks. All types of Metamorphic Rocks+ have a variety of uses and many unknown and interesting facts. Get more information about main rocks like Slate, Marble, Schist, Gneiss, Quartzite. Also get details about their Definition, Origin, Formation Process, Textures, Colors etc here.

All Metamorphic Rocks

We are providing you with a segregated list of All Metamorphic Rocks. You can check out various characteristics of all the rocks that come under this category. At rocks.comparenature.com, we have tried to cover all the rocks that come under Metamorphic Rocks+. Rocks are an integral part of our day-to-day life. It is a solid material which occurs naturally and is made up of a variety of minerals. Depending upon the formation process, all rocks are divided into three main categories; Igneous Rocks, Sedimentary Rocks and Metamorphic Rocks. These rocks are further sub-divided into types. Though all rocks look similar, they have different physical and thermal properties. We have organized information in a tabular form where you will find the origin, discoverer of all the types of rocks, list of their colors and textures and many unique and intriguing facts about Metamorphic Rocks. We are also providing you with a sorted list of countries where the deposits of that particular rock are found. Discover unknown facts about your favorite rock and find the one with attractive texture.
