as magma, when I erupt as lava I become igneous rock. lava erupted into the earth's surface cools and solidifies, forming extrusive igneous rock.
I have been weathered down from igneous rock to sediment. water and wind brought me down to the ocean and now I must continue my rock cycle journey to become sedimentary rock once more.
after traveling through the ocean I was brought hear through deposition after I had been cementation and compaction, now I am sedimentary rock again. this never ending process is called the rock cycle.
