3. Biogenic, (biologic) origin, those derived from living matter (plant or animal). Terrigenous is the term used to describe material derived from the land. A "clastic" texture is the term used to describe a sediment or sedimentary rock made up of bits and pieces of minerals, rocks, or shells (Fig. 4), etc. The clastic sedimentary rocks that have had a terrigenous, extrabasinal origin because of the mechanical or partial chemical weathering of silicate precursors produce rock fragments, large to small, that are here called silicate clastic sediments.

May metamorphose into slate. 2. Phyllitic texture refers to a slightly wavy to subparallel arrangement of submicroscopic sheet silicate minerals, mostly very fine-grained chlorite and/or muscovite. Rocks with this texture commonly have a pearly or satiny luster. Phyllitic texture is the result of low- to medium-grade metamorphism. Slate may metamorphose into phyllite. 3. Schistose texture refers to parallel to subparallel orientation of macroscopic sheet silicate minerals in metamorphic rocks.
