Some schists are the product of the metamorphism of clays. A succession may be traced from a clay, to a slate, to a schist.

Marble results from the metamorphism of limestone. The presence of carbon dioxide apparently aids the formation of a granular structure and a rough, microscopic schistosity may be imposed.
