  3. 3. What Is A Metamorphic Rock? <ul><li>A metamorphic rock is a rock that has been changed in shape. </li></ul><ul><li>Before the components of a metamorphic rocks are Igneous, Sedimentary, Metamorphic or other types of rocks pushed together by gravity and pressure. </li></ul><ul><li>The texture might even have no sign of its components, but will have crystallizations. </li></ul>
  4. 4. One Kind Of Metamorphic Rock- Marble <ul><li>Marble is a metamorphic rock that comes from metamorphosed limestone, calcite, or dolomite. </li></ul><ul><li>Color: Various but usually gray or white. </li></ul><ul><li>Marble is usually used for making sculptures and flooring. </li></ul><ul><li>Marble tends to be considered an elegant material. It is also tied closely to the classical Greek and Roman periods. A relatively expensive, and difficult to maintain stone, it is most often used in delicate and upscale applications. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Another Kind Of Metamorphic Rock- Quartzite <ul><li>Quartzite is a coarse-grained metamorphic rock derived from sandstone. </li></ul><ul><li>Color: Usually white, light gray, yellowish, or light brown. </li></ul><ul><li>Quartzite is used for floorings, construction materials and is part of the ingredients in glass. </li></ul><ul><li>It has a uniform texture and is very hard, 7 on the Mo's Scale. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Last Kind Of Metamorphic Rock That We Will Define-Gneiss <ul><li>Gneiss is a medium to course grained metamorphic rock. </li></ul><ul><li>Color: Usually black and white. </li></ul><ul><li>Gneiss is used for gravestones, and flooring material. </li></ul><ul><li>Gneiss is found in New England, the Piedmont (Part of North America), the Adirondacks, and the Rocky Mts. Some gneisses are used as facing stone on buildings. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Properties Of A Metamorphic Rock <ul><li>Metamorphic rocks are composed of Ingenious, Sedimentary, Metamorphic or any other kind of rock pushed together by gravity, heat, and pressure. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Glossary <ul><li>Metamorphic- A metamorphic rock is a rock that has been changed in shape. </li></ul><ul><li>Heat- Heat is when something turns very hot and melts into hot liquid. </li></ul><ul><li>Crystallization- When hot liquid freezes. This hardens into different shapes and lusters. </li></ul><ul><li>Pressure- Is when something or someone is using much force to push or move an object and is the friction from pushing or moving the object. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Test <ul><li>How is a metamorphic rock formed? </li></ul><ul><li>Gravity and pressure </li></ul><ul><li>List two properties of a metamorphic rock. </li></ul><ul><li>Sculptures, flooring and statues </li></ul><ul><li>What is marble used for? </li></ul><ul><li>Sculptures and flooring </li></ul><ul><li>What is a metamorphic rock? </li></ul><ul><li>Rocks that are Squished together. </li></ul>
