Minette Formation

Minette formation took place millions of years ago. There are a variety of Minette Uses and the Minette Reserves are found in many countries around the world. The rocks in the earth’s crust continuously undergo changes in their composition which leads to formation of other rocks. Each rock has a unique formation process. Formation of Minette is explained below:

  • Minette formation takes place deep beneath the Earth’s surface at around 150 to 450 kms, and are erupted rapidly and violently.

Along with Minette Formation, also learn about Minette composition and transformation in the next section.

Minette Composition

Every rock is composed of one or more minerals. Minette composition which can be further divided into mineral and compound content. The Minette mineral content includes Amphibole, Carbonate, Garnet, Micas, Olivine, Phlogopite, Pyroxene. Its compound content includes Aluminium Oxide, NaCl, CaO, Iron(III) Oxide, FeO, Potassium Oxide, MgO, MnO, Sodium Oxide, Silicon Dioxide, Titanium Dioxide.

Transformation of Minette

Every rock on earth undergoes transformation process. Minette is a type of Igneous Rocks. Transformation of Minette takes place in three steps- Metamorphism, Weathering and Erosion.

  • Metamorphism of Minette:- Metamorphism is change in arrangement of minerals and texture in the pre-existing rocks. Minette rock undergoes metamorphism. Unlike in formation of Minette, the rock does not melt into liquid magma. Minette undergoes burial metamorphism, cataclastic metamorphism, contact metamorphism, hydrothermal metamorphism, impact metamorphism and regional metamorphism.
  • Weathering of Minette:- The breaking down of rocks when they come in contact with the Earth's atmosphere, ecology and water is called as weathering. Talking about weathering of Minette, this rock undergoes weathering. Weathering of Igneous rocks leads to formation of Sedimentary rocks. Weathering is further classified as chemical and mechanical weathering. Minette undergoes biological weathering and chemical weathering.
  • Minette Erosion:- After formation of Minette, let’s move on to Minette Erosion. The weathered small fragments of rock are carried from one place to other by a process called erosion. Minette rock undergoes Erosion. Erosion is one of the important aspects in the life cycle of a rock. Minette undergoes chemical erosion, coastal erosion, sea erosion and wind erosion.
