Metamorphic Rocks

It turns out that both texture and grain size are functions of the degree, or grade of metamorphism. The grade of metamorphism is primarily controlled by temperature. As temperature increases, the grain size of the minerals in a metamorphic rock increases. The most common names are derived from the metamorphism of shale.

Sedimentary Rocks Lesson #13

Shale is usually found in thin layers. The silt or clay that composes shale is made of very small pieces of weathered rock. The pieces are from 1/16 to 1/256 of a millimeter in diameter. The color of a sample of shale is that of the clay or silt that it was formed from.

The larger the size of grains in a clastic rock, the more energy it took to move that particle to the place of deposition!

Gamma ray logs

Thus, the gamma ray level is assumed to be correlated with grain size. In reality, shales may be composed of 30% or more of quartz and other minerals. The clays within the shales may not be radioactive, and the adjacent sands may contain radioactive isotopes. However, radioactivity levels typically are related to grain size, as seen in Fig. 8
