The rock layers visible here represent different types of rock formed at different depths, including rocks from both the crust and upper mantle, making this one of the most accessible and complete examples of an ‘ophiolite.

Steatite is also known as soapstone, in Shetland its kleber or clebber and the Norse name for steatite was kleberg. The talc content in steatite makes it easy to work with and decorative items were carved from it, but local folk being more practical in the nineteenth century, found it perfect when used for fire bricks, as well as making sinkers.

A metamorphic rock, on the other hand, began as a rock—either a sedimentary, igneous, or even a different sort of metamorphic rock. Then, due to various conditions within the Earth, the existing rock was changed into a new kind of metamorphic rock.

The conditions required to form a metamorphic rock are very specific. Find the perfect metamorphic rock landscape stock photo. Huge collection, amazing choice, + million high quality, affordable RF and RM images. No need to register, buy now.

The predominating sedimentary rocks in Shetland belong to the Old Red Sandstone formation. These are found from Sumburgh Head to Rova Head, and in Fair Isle, Mousa and Bressay.

The fault or boundary line between them and the metamorphic rocks is clearly [] traceable at various points along the east of the Mainland.

Shetland has no streams large enough to be called rivers ; but it has burns in plenty, rippling brooks in summer and brawling torrents of brown peaty water in winter, when the soil is sodden with rain or snow.

Metamorphic rocks and processes • Metamorphism comes from the Greek words “Meta” - change “Morphe” - form • Metamorphic rocks form by solid-state (no melting) transformation of preexisting rock by processes that take place beneath Earth’s surface.

Metamorphic rocks. Prior to the main work on the metamorphic and synorogenic igneous rocks of Shetland was carried out by Heddle (, ) whose primary task was the description of the minerals and mineral localities throughout the islands.

Heddle recorded the presence of many rare minerals, some minerals new to science, and also the first known British occurrence of relatively common minerals such as chloritoid.

Two groups of metamorphic rocks can be identified based upon the presence or absence of a specific texture (foliation) in the rocks.

Sedimentary rocks, the most common rocks on the Earth's surface, are readily identified by the presence of layers (beds). Although layering is sometimes present in igneous and metamorphic rocks, it is.

Metamorphic rock - Metamorphic rock - Major features: The most obvious features of metamorphic rocks are certain planar features that are often termed s-surfaces. The simplest planar features may be primary bedding (akin to the layering in sedimentary rocks).

As the rock crystallizes or recrystallizes under directed pressure, new crystals may grow in some preferred direction, sometimes. Shetland rocks. Discover Shetland’s most dramatic, beautiful geological landscapes.

Changes produced by surface conditions such as compaction are usually excluded. The most important agents of metamorphism include temperature, pressure, and fluids.
