Mylonite

Mylonite

The term mylonite was first utilized in 1885 by Charles Lapworth to describe a fine-grained, laminated rock that he discovered in the Moine Thrust Zone of Scotland. Since that time, the word has become a general structural indicator of any distinctly foliated, fine-grained rock associated with a high level of ductile deformation.
