Rock Questions

A Metamorphic Rock With Grains Arranged in Bands Is This Foliated
This Is an Igneous Rock Made up of the minerals,quartz,mica,feldspar,and hornblende Granite
Rock texture with grains that are large and easy to see is called a...... Coarse-Grained
Humans mostly used rock for what in the past Tool & Weapons
Geologists Classify Metamorphic rock according to this Arrangement of their Grains
Does a Sedimentary rock have to become Metamorphic rock before it can become magma No, it can get pushed into magma and melts
Explain How a Metamorphic rock can become magma Gets pushed into the Mantle and Melts
Sandstone,Shale,and Breccia are examples of these types of Sedimentary Rock Clastic Sedimentary Rock
Mineral most resistant to scratching, hardest mineral on Moh's Scale of hardness Daimond
Determines the composition of rock Minerals
Does each major group of rocks follow only one pathway in the rock cycle No
Type of Sedimentary rock Formed From dissolved minerals or due to evaporation Chemical
Pathway in which magma becomes sedimentary rock WEDCOCE Weathering,Erosion,Deposition,Compaction,Cementation
Small particals of rock or the remains of living things that make up Sedimentary rocks are called these Sediments
Rocks are made up of mixture of these MINERALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Process when Sediments settle out of the water or wind that carries it Depostition
Explain how a grain of sand could some day be lava Sand Becomes Sandstone And Gets pushed into the mantle and melts forming into magma then gets pushed up a volcano
Explain How Course-Grained Igneous rock is formed When Magma Cools Slowly Under the Earths Surface
Explain how organic sedimentary rocks are formed Formed form Fossils Of Plants or the remains of living Animals or things
What Type of rock is granite,describe,explain how it is formed An Igneous Rock Formed from magma containing minerals such as Quartz,Mica,Feldspar,and Hornblende
Size,shape,and position of grains make up a rock's Texture
Igneous rock formed from lava that erupted onto Earth's Surface is called what Extrusive Igneous Rock
Geologist use this to describe rocks Texture Size,Shape,and Position
Processes which form sediment is called Weathering
Heat and Pressure deep beneath Earth's Surface can change any rock into this type of rock Metamorphic
During a rock cycle,what type of rock can change to form sedimentary rock All (Igneous and Metamorphic)
Texture of Metamorphic rock that has grains arranged randomly is described as this NonFoliated
What type of rock is Gneiss,describe, explain how it formed Gneiss-Metamorphic rock -Thin and put under high pressure that came form shale
Type of rocks formed on Earths Surface Extrusive
Most abundant rock in the continental crust Granite
Name some rocks suitable for building building materials Limestone-Granite-sandstone and other rocks marble
Process where dissolved minerals crystallize and glue particals of sediment together,changing the rock on Earth's surface, is this Cementation
Series of processes on Earth's surface and interior that slowly changes rocks from one kind to another Rock Cycle
2 pathways an Igneous rock can follow to become a metamorphic rock are these Heat And Pressure or Erosion and weathering to go to the sedimentary rock to Form into a metamorphic rock
Nonmetallic Minerals Valued for this beauty and rarity are called this GemStone
This happens to magma and lava once they cool and harden They Form Igneous
This is where most metamorphic rock forms In the Mantle
Chalk formed from sediments made of skeletons of microscopic living things in the ocean must be this type of rock Organic
Rocks which get pushed or shifted into the mantle become this melt and become magma
Scientists classify rocks by these three characteristics Igneous,Sedimentary,Metamorphic Rock
Why is cement,brick,steel,and glass not classified as minerals It's already pushed and pressed together
