Pyrometamorphism happens at very excessive temperatures (800 - > a thousand °C) and coffee pressures (< 2 kb) and usually ends up in the formation of 'burnt' and fused rocks termed buchites, paralavas, clinkers and fulgarites. it's commonly linked to shallow basaltic intrusions (contact aureoles, xenoliths,) combustion of carbonaceous topic, lightning moves, and can be present in meteorites. in the course of pyrometamorphism, the series of heating and cooling is vastly condensed favouring the maintenance of quite a few stranded response microstructures that mirror disequilibrium response kinetics with metastable and mineral crystallisation.
