    10.05.2019· This type of metamorphic was created by regional metamorphism in which a sedimentary or igneous rock has been deeply buried and subjected to high temperatures and pressures. Nearly all traces of the original structures (including fossils) and fabric (such as layering and ripple marks) are wiped out as the minerals migrate and recrystallize.

    3. METAMORPHIC ROCKS Metamorphic rocks are basically rocks that have experience change due to high pressure and temperature below zone of diagenesis. Protolith refers to the original rock prior to metamorphism. In low grade metamorphic rocks original textures are often preserved allowing one to determine the likely protolith.
