Hi there! I'm Sammy and I am an igneous rock! I've had a long journey to be here, and have been formed through the cooling of magma (hot fluid below earth's crust)
Through the weathering like the rain I am experiencing now, I have now become sediment which is broken down rock.
After being moved around I went through compaction and cementation to become a sedimentary rock.
Once I was exposed to heat and pressure I formed a new rock called a metamorphic rock. Some common examples of metamorphic rock is quartzite, slate, and marble.
I make my way underground where I melt to become magma. As I reach the surface I am now called lava.
Once I am on land I cool. This causes me to become an igneous rock . An igneous rock brings us back to the beginning of the cycle. This shows that the rock cycle always comes back to the beginning and will continue to happen over and over again.
