Caption

Eclogite rock sample. This is a metamorphic rock, formed when heat and pressure in the Earth's crust alter the structure of existing rocks. Eclognite forms under relatively high pressures (ultra-high pressure metamorphism) and is a very dense rock. It is thought to help drive the convection currents found in the Earth's mantle. This rock normally forms from basalt or gabbro, heated up and compressed in a subduction zone, a region where the Earth's crust descends into the mantle. A wide range of minerals are found in eclogite samples, but the most common is garnet. The round, red-grey areas in this rock are garnet stones.
