This rock is formed by making bigger crystals due to heat and pressure. Metamorphic
This rock is formed when sediments become cemented together. Sedimentary
Rocks are broken down into small sediments is the process of… Weathering
If Sedimentary rock undergoes enough heat and pressure it will turn into…. Metamorphic rock
