Igneous rocks Igneous rocks Presentation Transcript

  • I. Formation They are formed when hot, liquid rock, or magma, cools and solidifies (Hardens)
  • II. Classification  Igneous rocks are classified according to their composition and texture.  4 basic types of textures Glassy – black and sharp Fine grained – interlocking pieces Coarse grained – consist of interlocking mineral crystals Porphyritic – made of large crystals scattered on the back of small crystals.
  • Igneous Rocks Coarse-Grained Fine-Grained Granite Gabbro Basalt Rhyolite
  • III. Magma vs. Lava Magma – molten material below the earth’s surface. Lava – molten material above the earth’s surface.
  • A. Intrusive Igneous Rocks:  Magma pushes into surrounding rock below the Earth’s surface  Cools slower  Large Crystals  Think: (INSIDE)
  • Examples:
  • Did you know?!?! Granite is the most abundant intrusive rock!
  • B. Extrusive Rocks:  forms when magma erupts onto the Earth’s surface (lava),  cools quickly  very small or no crystals formed  Think: (EXTERIOR)
  • Example: Basalt is the most common EXTRUSIVE igneous rock!
  • Did you know?!?! Another name for an Extrusive rock is a VOLCANIC rock
  • A Closer Look at an Igneous Rock Obsidian is a dark-colored volcanic glass that forms from the very rapid cooling of molten rock material. It cools so rapidly that crystals do not form. Is it fine-grained or coarse-grained? Is this rock Intrusive or Extrusive?
