List of Intrusive Rocks

Check out the List of Intrusive Rocks here. Igneous rocks may form with or without crystallization either below the surface as intrusive or plutonic rocks and on the surface as extrusive or volcanic rocks. Intrusive rocks which are also known as plutonic rocks are those that have solidified below ground; the word "Plutonic" comes from Pluto, the Greek god of the underworld. Intrusive igneous rocks are generally formed from magma that cools and solidifies within the Earth's crust and is surrounded by pre-existing rock. The magma cools slowly and, as a result, these rocks are coarse grained. You can also know more about Volcanic Rocks which are formed when lava cools and solidifies on the earth's surface. All types of Intrusive Rocks+ have a variety of uses and many unknown and interesting facts. Get more information about main rocks like Granite, Diorite, Gabbro, Peridotite, Porphyry. Also get details about their Definition, Origin, Formation Process, Textures, Colors etc here.

All Intrusive Rocks

We are providing you with a segregated list of All Intrusive 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 Intrusive 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 Intrusive 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.
