Mica-Schist - Encyclopedia - theodora

MICA-SCHIST, in petrology, a rock composed essentially of mica and quartz, and having a thin parallel-banded or foliated structure, with lamellae rich in mica alternating with others which are principally quartz. They split readily along the micaceous films, and have smooth or slightly uneven surfaces covered with lustrous plates of muscovite or biotite; the quartzose lamellae are often ...

Foliation is much better developed in most schists and gneisses than in most quartzites and marbles. Schist and gneiss are composed dominantly of silicate minerals. Marble is an all calcite rock and quartzite is composed dominantly of quartz. Calcite is much softer than most rock-forming silicates and reacts vigorously with dilute acids.

Limestone vs Schist - rocksparenature

Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed mostly of calcite and aragonite, which are different crystal forms of calcium carbonate. Schist is a medium grade metamorphic rock with medium to large, flat, sheet like grains in a preferred orientation. These rocks are composed of many distinct minerals.
