Igneous Rocks

Igneous rocks are formed either deep underground within the earth, when magma becomes trapped in small pockets and slowly cools down to a solid form, Or above ground after volcano eruptions when lava cools down and becomes a solid form. Common types include Granite, Basalt, Gabbro, Pumice and Rhyolite

Granite

Provided in fully labelled trays.

Granite rocks are igneous rocks, they were formed by the slow cooling process on pockets of magma that had become trapped beneath the earth's surface. Granite is used for such things as long lasting monuments and trim & decoration on buildings.

Rhyolite

Provided in fully labelled trays.

Rhyolite Rocks are made of fine, to very fine grains. They form by very rapid growth in quickly cooling magma, and the crystallization of glass. Rapid cooling results in minute crystals such as porphyritic rhyolite.

Other Igneous Rocks

Provided in trays, fully labelled.

Igneous rocks are formed either underground as magma, deep within the earth becomes trapped in small pockets and cools or above ground as lava after volcano eruptions cool down. We source the finest samples from all over the UK and Europe.
