List of Volcanic Rocks

Check out the List of Volcanic Rocks here. Igneous rocks may form with or without crystallization either below the surface as intrusive (plutonic) rocks or on the surface as extrusive (volcanic) rocks.Volcanic rocks  which are also known as extrusive igneous rocks include all the rocks resulting from eruptions of lava. They are formed when magma or lava cools and solidifies on the Earth's surface.Volcanic rocks are among the most common rock types below Earth's surface, mainly in the oceans. On land, they are very common at plate boundaries and in flood basalt provinces. You can also know more about other Intrusive Rocks which are formed when lava cools and solidifies below the earth's surface. All types of Volcanic Rocks+ have a variety of uses and many unknown and interesting facts. Get more information about main rocks like Obsidian, Basalt, Rhyolite, Andesite, Scoria. Also get details about their Definition, Origin, Formation Process, Textures, Colors etc here.

All Volcanic Rocks

We are providing you with a segregated list of All Volcanic 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 Volcanic 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 Volcanic Rocks. We are also providing you with a sorted list of countries where the deposits of that particular rock are found.
