Igneous RocksCooling & crystallization of magmaLava = molten rock at surface
Igneous RocksClassified by:Texture = crystal size of mineralsComposition = minerals present

Texture (Crystal Size)Two environments where magma cools:1) Deep underground2) At surface
Types of Texture1) Fine-grained   - crystals invisible to naked eye   - magma cooled _________   - extrusive/volcanic
Types of Texture2) Vesicular- fine-grained w/ many holes in it
Types of Texture3) Coarse-grained - crystals easily visible - magma cooled __________ - intrusive/plutonic
Types of Texture4) Porphyritic - two size crystals in same rockLarge crystals = ___________Small crystals = ___________
