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.
