Metamorphic Rocks Pictures of Foliated and Non-Foliated Rock Types (Gneiss pictures is an example of foliated metamorphic rock)

Disharmonic folds in gneiss.  Gneiss is a common and widely distributed type of rock formed by high-grade regional metamorphic processes from pre-existing formations that were originally either igneous or sedimentary rocks.

Tigers Eye. Yes, there is Blue Tigers Eye.

Tiger's eye is a metamorphic rock that is usually a golden-brown to red-brown color, w/ a silky luster. A member of the quartz group, it is a classic example of pseudomorphous replacement by silica of fibrous crocidolite (blue asbestos)

Amphibolite is a non-foliated metamorphic rock that forms through recrystallization under conditions of high viscosity and directed pressure. It is composed primarily of amphibole and plagioclase, usually with very little quartz. The specimen shown above is about two inches (five centimeters) across.
