    Bedding facility is the distance between two joints. More info:-fracture cleavage-A type of cleavage that occurs in deformed but only slightly metamorphosed rocks and that is based on closely spaced, parallel joints and fractures. Cenulation cleavage:-crenulation or crenulation cleavage is a fabric formed in metamorphic rocks such as phyllite, schist and some gneiss by two or more stress directions causing the formation of the superimposed foliations. Slip cleavage:-Cleavage that is superposed on slaty cleavage or schistosity, characterized by spaced cleavage with thin tabular bodies of rock between the cleavage planes. Also known as close-joints cleavage; crenulation cleavage; shear cleavage; strain-slip cleavage.
