Slaty cleavage and Schistosity Cleavage is the result of rock flowage. Rock is shortened at right angles to the cleavage but lengthened parallel to it. Cleavage results from parallelism of platy and ellipsoidal grains. Cleavage forms perpendicular to the least strain axis that is, at right angles.

The conclusion is that annealing would convert the fabric 14] to one resembling slaty cleavage if fine-grained, or schistosity if coarse grained. adshelp[at] The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86A.

EXPERIMENTS ON SCHISTOSITY AND SLATY CLEAVAGE. By GEORGE F. BECKER. Abundance of fissile rocks. A very large part of the rocks exposed at the earth's surface exhibit schistosity or cleavability not ascribable to sedimentation and often well marked in masses of igneous origin. In particular, cleavage planes are axial planes of associated folds, though fanning about the axial hinge surface is common (Fig.

Texturally, cleavage is due predominantly to the preferred orientation of platy minerals of the mica family, but other minerals, such as elongated or platy grains of calcite or quartz, may impart cleavage.

In all situations, a schistosity or slaty cleavage is present that is pervasive throughout the greenstone belt. McBride () demonstrated this in the Onaman Lake area and east of Beardmore, where a stereonet of over schistosity measurements shows a single deformation fabric throughout the southern volcanic belt and adjacent sedimentary.

An experiment is described in which folds and an axial-plane foliation were produced in an artificial layered specimen made from salt and mica. The foliation differs on a micro-scale from natural foliations due to the unnatural experimental conditions. Taking results of annealing experiments into account a model is presented for the development of natural foliations.

Schistosity is a coarser grained version of slaty cleavage, and is the term used for a more or less penetrative foliation defined by mineral grains coarser than about 1 mm. Many geologists actually recognize an intermediate feature phyllitic foliation, when the fabric-defining minerals are just visible.

Schistosity as a structure is important, and it is a part of the business of geologists to explain its origin. Slaty cleavage has further and greater importance as a possible tectonic feature. Scarcely a great mountain range exists, or has existed, along the course of which belts of slaty rock are not found, the dip of the cleavage usually approaching verticality.

Schistosity, mode of foliation that occurs in certain metamorphic rocks as a consequence of the parallel alignment of platy and lath-shaped mineral constituents.

It reflects a considerable intensity of metamorphism—i.e., changes resulting from high temperatures, pressures, and. Slaty cleavage is literally cleavage made of thin slates of rock.

Schistosity is when mica and chlorite crystals begin to grow. When these platy materials are large enough to be discernible with the unaided eye and exhibit a layered structure they are said to exhibit schistosity.

Gneissic structures are. Sharpe () and Sorby () both emphasised the importance of this elongation or stretching in the production of slaty cleavage; but in many textbooks this factor is ignored, and reference is only made to the fact that the rocks have been subjected to pressure.

The cleavage is still a continuous one, and the development of QF- and M-domains is more pronounced than for slaty cleavage. The domainal cleavage becomes better developed because dissolution (wet diffusion) becomes more efficient as green schist facies temperatures are reached.

Schistosity and Slaty Cleavage is an article from The Journal of Geology, Volume 4. View more articles from The Journal of this article on.

• Cranulation cleavage is found in rocks which already posses a strong cleavage or schistosity as a result of an earlier deformation.

• Suitable rock lithology- very finely laminated shales. • If the crenulation cleavage is very small, the resulting cleavage becomes indistinguishable from other type of slaty cleavage. A group name for various very-fine-grained rocks derived from mudstone, siltstone, and other clayey sediment as a result of low-degree regional metamorphism; characterized by perfect fissility or slaty cleavage which is a regular or perfect planar schistosity.

Kink bands are strongly asymmetric angular or sub-angular folds, whose geometry is that of a monoclinal step ().Although they have been described in diverse lithologies, kink bands typically develop in laminated materials (mainly shale, slates or schist) with a previous well-marked anisotropy (usually slaty cleavage or schistosity).Slaty Cleavage - a pervasive, parallel foliation (layering) of fine-grained platy minerals in a direction perpendicular to the direction of maximum stress.
