Pyrometamorphism occurs at very high temperatures (800 - > 1000 C) and low pressures (< 2 kb) and typically results in the formation of \'burnt\' and fused rocks termed buchites, paralavas, clinkers and fulgarites. It is typically associated with shallow basaltic intrusions combustion of carbonaceous matter, and is also found in meteorites.
