Types of Rocks

By richardsinonge • 7 days ago • 2173 views • 850 comments

There are generally three types of Rocks. These are sedimentary rocks, igneous rocks and metamorphic rocks. They are all formed through different ways.

Igneous rocks(hard volcanic rocks) is formed,when the motion lava from the volcano or crack in the earth crust out to the land the molton rock called magma as it cools it bacames hard solid.

Metamorphic rocks are formed  from already existing rocks. When the igneous and sedimentary rocks are subjected to heat and pressure( were by usually heat is produced)they may undergo changes in structure and in minerogical composition. The process is called Metamorphism.

Sedimentary rocks are formed by deposition of debris of other rocks include other sedimentarys,these are being eroded constantly washed into river,carried into the lakes,seas and by sedimontation crushed material can also be taken by wind thus giving to erosion sediments.

    Rock music isn't good for your ears, it's even more dangerous when you digest everything they sing. So stay safe and be mindful what you digest.
