Granulite Formation

Granulite formation took place millions of years ago. There are a variety of Granulite Uses and the Granulite Reserves are found in many countries around the world. The rocks in the earth’s crust continuously undergo changes in their composition which leads to formation of other rocks. Each rock has a unique formation process. Formation of Granulite is explained below:

  • Granulite is a fine-grained granular metamorphic rock in which the main component minerals are feldspars and quartz and forms at high temperature and pressure conditions.
