Product Description

Metamorphic Rock Collection

Contains 15 Metamorphic rocks and minerals.  Metamorphic rocks are those formed from the transformation of existing rock types in a process called metamorphism.  The original rock (protolith) is subjected to heat (temperatures greater than 150 to 200 °C) and pressure (1500 bars), causing profound physical and/or chemical change. The protolith may be sedimentary rock, igneous or another older metamorphic rock.  For more information on metamorphic rocks, click here.  Samples are a little larger than 50c coin sized.
