Rocks, Rocks, and More Rocks Metamorphic Classified according to the arrangement of the grains that make up the rock & the minerals in them Metamorphic rocks are nicknamed “Changing Rocks” Why? How Metamorphic rocks form? From heat & pressure deep inside Earth Metamorphic rocks can form from Igneous, Sedimentary, or other Metamorphic rocks as they are pushed down toward the heat of the mantle 2 Types of Metamorphic Rock Foliated “Banded” Nonfoliated “Nonbanded” Foliated Metamorphic Rock • Def: Grains arranged in layers or bands that split into layers • Examples: Slate Schist Gneiss Original Rock New Metamorphic Rock Shale  Slate Shale (sedimentary) changes to Slate when heated & squeezed by pressure Original Rock  New Metamorphic Rock Granite Gneiss Granite (Igneous) changes to Gneiss when heated & squeezed by pressure Nonfoliated Metamorphic Rock • Def: Mineral grains arranged randomly, not split into layers • Examples: Marble Quartzite Original Rock  New Metamorphic Rock Sandstone Quartzite When Sandstone (Sedimentary) is under extreme heat & pressure, Quartzite will form Uses of Metamorphic Rocks • Slate: Old fashioned chalkboards, roofs, walkways, trim on buildings • Marbl *Sculptures (most famous – e: Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.) * Buildings How are the rock types related?
