  • For this section you will need metamorphic rock samples selected by your instructor. Locate these samples before you begin.

    1. Sample M1 has which metamorphic texture?
      1. Foliated
      2. Non-foliated
    2. Is grain size or composition more important to identify Sample M1?
      1. Grain size
      2. Composition
    3. What is the metamorphic rock name of sample M1?
    4. Sample M1 is an example of:
      1. high-grade of metamorphism
      2. intermediate-grade of metamorphism
      3. low-grade of metamorphism
    5. Identify a possible protolith for Sample M1.
