Metamorphic: The Rock Between by Bruce Lindsay, published on November 5, 2011. The music and performances on The Rock Between have rare strength and beauty. Metamorphic, the band, and Cole, the writer and arranger, have set the bar high for their future work, but this first album clearly shows that they have the talent to reach that bar, and jump right over it. Track Listing: Light Up Yourself; Two Solitudes; By Lullaby; The Rock Between; Ruby My Dear; Kind Folk Tell Me A Bedtime Story; The Cloak; Hyperballad; Out Inside; Two Feet Fall, Nardis, Sunshower.

Metamorphic rocks arise from the transformation of existing rock types, in a process called metamorphism, which means "change in form". The original rock (protolith) is subjected to heat (temperatures greater than 150 to 200 °C) and pressure (100 megapascals (1,000 bar) or more), causing profound physical or chemical change. The protolith may be a sedimentary, igneous, or existing metamorphic rock.

According to rock cycle one rock type can be changed into another (either of other two types). Out of the volume of the outer 16kms of the earth’s crust, 95% is igneous rocks and 5% is made up of sedimentary rocks. Note that here the metamorphic rocks are included either of the category based on their original rock type, that is, if it is from igneous origin then that is considered under igneous rocks. Metamorphic rocks are formed due to metamorphism from existing igneous or sedimentary rocks or even from existing metamorphic rocks. When existing rocks undergo changes due to high pressure and/or high temperature and/or high shearing stresses, metamorphic rocks are formed. Usually metamorphic rocks are formed deep in the earth.

Metamorphic rocks are rocks that have changed as a result of exposure to extreme pressure and heat. The term metamorphic itself is the combination of the Greek words meta, which means after, and morph, which means change. Intense temperatures and pressure beneath the earth cause physical and chemical change to igneous and sedimentary rocks, causing them to form metamorphic rocks. Marble comes from limestone, while slate is formed from shale or mudstone. So what’s the difference between igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks? Igneous rocks are molten rocks expelled as lava that has cooled and become solid. This type of rock is usually found in the earth’s mantle. Metamorphic rocks, on the other hand, are transformed rocks as a result of exposure to extreme heat and pressure beneath the earth’s mantle.

A metamorphic rock is a type of rock which has been changed by extreme heat and pressure. Its name is from 'morph' (meaning form), and 'meta' (meaning change). The original rock gets heated (temperatures greater than 150 to 200 °C) and pressured (1500 bars). This causes profound physical and/or chemical change. The original rock may be sedimentary rock, igneous rock or another older metamorphic rock.

Gneiss is a foliated metamorphic rock that has a banded appearance and is made up of granular mineral grains. It typically contains abundant quartz or feldspar minerals. The specimen shown above is about two inches (five centimeters) across. Hornfels is a fine-grained nonfoliated metamorphic rock with no specific composition. It is produced by contact metamorphism. Hornfels is a rock that was "baked" while near a heat source such as a magma chamber, sill, or dike. Marble is a non-foliated metamorphic rock that is produced from the metamorphism of limestone or dolostone. It is composed primarily of calcium carbonate. The specimen shown above is about two inches (five centimeters) across

Metamorphic rock - Metamorphic facies: Metamorphic petrologists studying contact metamorphism early in the 20th century introduced the idea of metamorphic facies (part of a rock or group of rocks that differs from the whole formation) to correlate metamorphic events. The concept was first defined in 1914 by a Finnish petrologist, Pentti Eelis Eskola, as any rock of a metamorphic formation that has attained chemical equilibrium through metamorphism at constant temperature and pressure conditions, with its mineral composition controlled only by the chemical composition.

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 mineral-rich fluids or, more commonly, some combination of these factors. Conditions like these are found deep within the Earth or where tectonic plates meet. Process of Metamorphism: The process of metamorphism does not melt the rocks, but instead transforms them into denser, more compact rocks.
