Metamorphic Textures During metamorphism, new minerals often form and/or existing minerals grow larger as the intensity of metamorphism increases. Frequently, mineral crystals that are elongated (such as hornblende) or have a sheet structure (for example, the micas— biotite and muscovite) become oriented perpendicular to compressional forces. 15). Foliation is associated with many metamorphic rocks and gives them a layered or banded appearance. Foliated Metamorphic Rocks The mineral crystals in foliated metamorphic rocks are either elongated or have thin, platy shapes and are arranged in a parallel or layered manner.
