Blue Schist is a type of metamorphic rock that is primarily composed of blue amphibole minerals, such as glaucophane, and white mica. It has a distinctive blue-green colour and a fine-grained texture, and often contains parallel layers or foliation resulting from the intense pressure and heat that the rock experienced during metamorphism.

Blue Schist forms as a result of the metamorphism of oceanic rocks, such as basalt or tuff, in subduction zones where one tectonic plate is forced under another. It is commonly found in regions with high geological activity, such as near plate boundaries or mountain ranges.

Blue Schist has a variety of uses, including as a decorative stone and in the production of certain types of ceramics.
