The type of metamorphic rock that is formed depends on the pressure, temperature, stress rate, fluids, and original parent rock composition.
Three major factors involved in metamorphism are elevated temperature, elevated pressure, and the chemical action of hot fluids.
At elevated pressures, water can be used to supply unequal, directed pressure by hydraulic forces.
