Metamorphic rocks are those formed by changes in preexisting rocks under the influence of high temperature, pressure, and chemically active solutions.
The changes can be chemical (compositional) and physical (textural) in. Metamorphic rocks are sedimentary or igneous rocks that have been transformed by pressure, heat, or the intrusion of fluids.
The heat may come from nearby magma or hot water intruding via hot springs. An introduction to rocks and minerals with detailed photos, description and identification information. Sponsored by the National Audubon Society, the National Wildlife Federation, and the Roger Tory Peterson Institute.
