What Causes Rocks to Metamorphose? Marble
Metamorphic rock is rock that has been greatly changed due to its surrounding environment. The word comes from the Greek words meta, meaning change, and morph, meaning form. Marble, quartzite and slate are a few examples of metamorphic rock. Marble is formed from limestone, slate is formed from shale, and quartzite is formed from sandstone. The metamorphic process often happens deep underground and the rock is usually quarried or resurfaces due to erosion.
