Multiple Folds
Multiple Folds
If you trace the bands of colour in this small rock face, you can see that the rock has been well deformed during metamorphosis, with the different layers folded and stretched to form some very complex patterns. The pinkish colour comes from staining by the Old Red Sandstone that once overlay these limestones, but has long since been eroded away.
