Igneous Rock

1     Caption: scoria, an igneous rock formed where lava cooled quickly above ground

When melted rock is below ground, it is called magma. Igneous rocks can form underground when a pocket of magma cools. When melted rock is above ground, it is called lava. Igneous rock can also form as the lava cools above ground after a volcano erupts. Granite is one type of igneous rock. Granite is very hard. It is used for structures that need to last a long time.

It can be ground up and used in cleaning products. It can also be used for landscaping. .....
