Dolomite (Mineral)

This fluid-driven mineralogical transformation leading to recrystallization without melting is the process of metamorphism. After metamorphic transformation, limestone and dolomite develop into marble, while in the presence of silica they produce a suite of calc-silicate minerals coupled with decarbonation reactions.

Contact Metamorphism

2012-4-17 · As discussed previously, contact metamorphism occurs as a result of a high geothermal gradient produced locally around intruding magma. Contact metamorphism is usually restricted to relatively shallow depths (low pressure) in the Earth because it is only at shallow depths where there will be a large contrast in temperature between the intruding magma and the surrounding country rock.

contact metamorphism in the Oslo Rift, the conditions of contact metamorphism in the Oslo Graben were be­ lieved to be well known. However, during the late 1980s and early 1990s, contact-metamorphic rocks were re-ex­ amined by modem petrological and geochemical meth­ ods (Jamtveit et al. 1992a, b, 1997a, b; Jamtveit & Andersen 1993).

Contact Metamorphism

Contact metamorphism is often described using subdivisions of the low-pressure hornfels facies (Fig. 1), although the eponymous minerals used to define this sequence, such as hornblende, do not always form in metapelites due to their Al-rich and Ca-poor bulk composition (Table 1).Nonetheless, these sub-facies have use in describing the relative intensity of metamorphism.
