Fascinating facts about the rock cycle
There are three major groups of rocks that make up the rock cycle. Igneous rocks were at one time molten rock that is called magma beneath the Earth's surface. Pillow basalt, a type of igneous rock, covers all the floors of the world's oceans.
Sedimentary rocks cover three-fourths of the Earth's surface but they make up only about 5% of the outer 10 miles of the Earth's crust. Clastic rocks are a major group of sedimentary rocks that are formed from broken bits and pieces of older rocks. Shale, mudstone, coral reefs and coal are all examples of sedimentary rocks.
Metamorphic rocks form when continents collide. At the roots of the mountains that make up the Himalayas metamorphic rocks are forming. Slate, schist and gneiss are examples of metamorphic rocks.
