Sample text

Bolsøy, Moldefjord, Møre og Romsdal, Norway. 6 The brownish-gray rock to the left and right is brown-weathering, impure marble. The marble is exposed on either side of an amphibolite layer, between the yellow arrows, that is covered with yellow and light-gray lichen. The rocks are folded about an antiformal hinge that plunges gently downward into the water. Bolsøy, Moldefjord, Møre og Romsdal, Norway. 7 Shoreline outcrop of strongly folded, alternating layers of carbonate-bearing biotite schist and white to gray marble.

Dissolution has lowered the marble surface below that of the surrounding silicate rocks. Vardholmbukta, Moldefjord, Møre og Romsdal, Norway.

Vikeså, Rogaland, Norway. Mineral abbreviations: B, biotite; C, ­cordierite; G, garnet; K, K-feldspar; M, ­muscovite; O, orthopyroxene; S, sillimanite; St, staurolite. Red arrows in E and F point to yellow alpha particle radiation halos in cordierite, surrounding uranium- and thoriumbearing mineral inclusions (probably zircon or monazite). 2 Typical outcrop of slate with the cleavage nearly vertical. This is a metamorphosed turbidite sequence. The quartz-rich former sandstone layers, now quartzite, are massive, without easily visible cleavage.
