There are 3 Classifications for Rocks


http://www.rocks-rock.com/rock-types.html

    Igneous:    “(derived from the Latin word igneus meaning of fire, from ignis meaning fire) forms through the cooling and solidification of magma or lava.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Igneous_rock

    Sedimentary:    are formed at the earth’s surface by the accumulation and cementation of fragments of earlier rocks, minerals, and organisms or as chemical precipitates and organic growths in water (sedimentation).”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sedimentary_rock

    Metamorphic:    “
are formed by subjecting any rock type—sedimentary rock, igneous rock or another older metamorphic rock—to different temperature and pressure conditions than those in which the original rock was formed. This process is called metamorphism; meaning to “change in form”.”
