Types of Igneous Rocks

Check out the Types of Igneous Rocks here. Igneous rocks got their name from the latin word “igneus” for fire and the name is appropriate because these rocks are born from fire or volcanic lava. Igneous rocks are geologically important because their minerals give information about composition of the mantle or the Earth’s crust, from which they are extracted and the temperature and pressure conditions that allowed this extraction, also the history of their ages can be obtained from various forms of radiometric dating which can be compared to the available geological strata, hence knowing the time sequence of events. In some cases, the Igneous Rocks host important mineral deposits for various minerals and metals. You can also compare rocks from Metamorphic Rocks and Sedimentary Rocks. All types of Igneous Rocks+ have a variety of uses and many unknown and interesting facts. Get more information about main rocks like Granite, Obsidian, Basalt, Diorite, Gabbro. Also get details about their Definition, Origin, Formation Process, Textures, Colors etc here.

All Igneous Rocks

We are providing you with a segregated list of All Igneous Rocks. You can check out various characteristics of all the rocks that come under this category. At www.comparerocks.com, we have tried to cover all the rocks that come under Igneous Rocks+. Rocks are an integral part of our day-to-day life. It is a solid material which occurs naturally and is made up of a variety of minerals. Depending upon the formation process, all rocks are divided into three main categories; Igneous Rocks, Sedimentary Rocks and Metamorphic Rocks. These rocks are further sub-divided into types. Though all rocks look similar, they have different physical and thermal properties. We have organized information in a tabular form where you will find the origin, discoverer of all the types of rocks, list of their colors and textures and many unique and intriguing facts about Igneous Rocks. We are also providing you with a sorted list of countries where the deposits of that particular rock are found. Discover unknown facts about your favorite rock and find the one with attractive texture.

Know All About Igneous Rocks

All rocks provide evidence about the historical past and give information about the Earth's crust. From rocks, we have learned about the existence of dinosaurs on Earth which are now extinct. We also know that Earth is constantly rotating and revolving and changing and rocks are continually being created. Here you will get to know all about Igneous Rocks.
