These textures, from slate to gneiss, define a continually-increasing extent of metamorphism.

Metamorphic facies are defined by the pressure-temperature fields in which particular minerals form. Additional metamorphic rock names exist: A claystonethe finest-grained sedimentary lithological symbols, deposited in Glacial Lake MissoulaMontana In igneous and metamorphic rocks, grain size is a measure of the sizes of lithological symbols crystals in the rock.

In igneous rock, this is used to determine the rate at which the material cooled: As metamorphic lithological symbols progress, the grains in metamorphic rocks can often be broken down into smaller grains.

These are used to determine which rock naming system to use e. In the case of sandstones and conglomerates, which cover a wide range of grain sizes, a word describing the grain size range is lithological symbols to the rock name.

Examples are "pebble conglomerate" and "fine quartz arenite". An ultramafic mantle xenolith with olivine and pyroxene altering brown to iddingsite in a matrix of mafic basalt scoria In rocks lithological symbols which mineral grains are large enough to lithological symbols identified using a hand lens, the visible mineralogy is included as part of the description.

In the case of sequences possibly including lithological symbolscalcite - cemented rocks or those with possible calcite veins, it is normal to test for the presence of calcite or other forms of calcium carbonate using dilute hydrochloric acid and looking for effervescence.

Lithological symbols general, igneous rocks can be categorized by increasing silica content as ultramaficmaficintermediateor felsicthough more mineral-specific classifications also exist.

Likewise, metamorphic facieswhich show the degree to which a rock has been exposed to heat and pressure and are therefore important in classifying metamorphic rocks, are determined by observing the mineral phases that are present in a lithological symbols.

Colour[ edit ] The colour of a rock or lithological symbols component parts is a distinctive characteristic of some rocks and is always recorded, sometimes against standard colour charts, such as that produced by the Rock-Color Chart Committee of the Geological Society of America based on the Munsell color system.

In sedimentary rocks the main visible fabric lithological symbols normally bedding and the scale and degree of development of the bedding is normally recorded as part of the description.

Metamorphic rocks apart from those created by contact metamorphismare characterised by well-developed planar and lithological symbols fabrics. Igneous rocks may also have fabrics due lithological symbols to flow or to the settling out of particular mineral phases during crystallisation, forming cumulates.

Texture[ edit ] The lithology of this porphyritic basalt is characterized by olivine and augite phenocrysts.

Lithology Symbols

The name of an igneous rock requires information on crystal size and mineralogy. This classification can often be performed with lithological symbols QAPF diagram. Naming based on texture and a pelite e. Texture-based names are schist and gneiss.
