With further metamorphism…


I wrote a post back in December entitled: “So what is slate anyway?”.

What’s really fascinating about geology is that it never stops its inherent onward progression! Slate, if subjected to further heat and pressure will change into other types of stone. With this additional metamorphism, slate turns to phyllite, then to schist or gneiss.

Check out the links – It makes for some very interesting reading.
