oh my god this is good
Hello! My name is Joshua! I've just learned a whole lot about the world of Geology, so let's kick right in to the world of rocks! And it's not as weird as you think. It's actually quite interesting!
First, we need to get to the origin of what I'm talking about. Put simply, it's rocks. But wait, there's more! If you stay now, you'll be learning how rocks were made. Sticking around? Good. So, anyways, the first kind of rock would be Igneous rock, which is made from cooled magma/lava. That would be made from rock that was burnt into the mantle, then it spat out back onto the crust. There's many kinds of Igneous rocks out there, like Obsidian and Granite. Now, what would happen if there was a rock with other rocks inside?
That would be called Sedimentary rock. It's made up of sediment, which was made from the Earth. There are many kinds of these rocks that were made, such aa Conglomerate. But wait, I remember there being something about...
..what's its name? Ah, yes! Metamorphic rocks! These things don't morph, because that would be stupid. They actually have a couple attributes, such as being made of both kinds of rock in any way shape or form. Well, not exactly, but its made from the same elements when these rocks are broken down from the ground up. These rocks consist of Schist and Marble.
Now, that's not all. How exactly ARE these things created? Let's get to the bottom of the Rock Cycle!
Put simply, the Rock Cycle is how all of these rocks are made. You begin with, well, molecules. It then goes to a Metoamorphic rock.
