Schist, megascopically crystalline rock that has a highly developed schistosity, or tendency to split into layers. Schist is a foliated metamorphic rock made up of plate-shaped mineral grains that are large enough to see with an unaided eye.

It usually forms on a continental side of a convergent plate boundary where sedimentary rocks, such as shales and mudstones, have been subjected to compressive forces, heat, and chemical activity. It formed by metamorphosis of mudstone and shale or some form of igneous rock. Banding (foliation) is typically poorly developed or absent. It usually has better crystallisation of mica minerals. Schist is faliated medium grade metamorphic rock. They are biotite, chlorite and muscovite so this called schistosity texture.
