basalt and diabase are more resistant to erosion than the enclosing sandstone and shale, and therefore they form ridges and uplands. The Palisades, Rocky Hill, Sourland Mountain, and Cushetunk Mountain are underlain by diabase layers. The Watchung Mountains, Long Hill, and Hook Mountain are underlain by basalt layers.

turned into sandstone or sandstone into a quartzite. By the removal of certain constituents by percolating waters, basalt or granite may be converted into a laterite. The action of heat hardens the rock and develops new crystals in it. Crystalline marble is produced this way from amorphous limestone by the action of heat and pressure.
