Mylonites shape based on excessive charges of pressure inside of deep ductile shear zones, that are the extensions at intensity of floor faults, thrusts and fault breccias, they could have many alternative mineralogical compositions and are for that reason outlined on their textural visual appeal. This atlas presents excessive definition photographs of a big variety of various mylonites permitting scholars and geologists to properly classify them with higher ease. It additionally presents insights into the translation of mylonitic materials to reply to questions resembling; from what kind of rock did this mylonite derive? What have been the metamorphic conditions in the course of mylonitization? What used to be the depth of deformation?, and What used to be the feel of shear?
This booklet will supplement the very profitable textbook "Microtectonics" through Passchier and Trouw.
