Formation of Skarn

Add ⊕
1 Formation
1.1 Formation
Due to change in environmental conditions, rocks are heated and pressurized deep inside the Earth's surface. Skarn is formed from the extreme heat caused by magma or by the intense collisions and friction of tectonic plates.
1.2 Composition
1.2.1 Mineral Content
Calcite, Enstatite, Epidote, Garnet, Magnetite, Pyroxene, Titanite
1.2.2 Compound Content
Au, CaO, Carbon Dioxide, Cu, Fe, MgO

Skarn Formation

Skarn formation took place millions of years ago. There are a variety of Skarn Uses and the Skarn 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 Skarn is explained below:

  • Due to change in environmental conditions, rocks are heated and pressurized deep inside the Earth's surface. Skarn is formed from the extreme heat caused by magma or by the intense collisions and friction of tectonic plates.
