The water flows downhill, erosion of the host rock to soften it. The clean water of the ironbearing minerals, which help to delineate the sides of the glass. The water boils at the rocks that come in contact with, causing them to liquefy and slowly cool and harden in a new stable state. Mineral water interferes with the crystallization, delaying the process of metamorphism. The water migrates into the host rock carrying ions to stable minerals with the aim of facilitating the growth of new minerals metamorphic.
