Caption

Microfolds in graphite schist. Light micrograph of banded layers of metamorphic rock. The convoluted layers formed when sediment such as quartz, organic matter and clay were laid down over a period of time, for instance on a lake bed. The layers were then deformed by geological processes such as uplifting. Compression of the rock converted the minerals into carbon-rich quartzite and schist.
