Carrock Fell Mine - Hornfels and Granite
Carrock Fell Mine - Hornfels and Granite, taken 4 years ago
This shows the granite and hornfels wedge contact. The heat of the granite cooked the former sediments. The granite has been altered by greisenation to a muscovite-rich granite as opposed to the original biotite mica-rich version.
