What kind of rock is this?


Recommended Posts

To me this looks like a metamorphic sandstone, like slate because of the fine grains.  To me, gneiss has a larger crystal composition and possibly a taffy like texture.  I read that "Regional metamorphism can transform shale into slate, then phyllite, then schist, and finally into gneiss."
