Hello! I am Owen the Obsidian, well not yet I am currently going through the process called the "Rock Cycle." It is when I go through weathering and erosion to become a rock. This is the first stage of the rock cycle. I first start off as molten rock (magma). Which cools and hardens to form an igneous rock
Rock Cycle By: Skyler Koneski
When I become an igneous rock I go through weathering. When I am exposed to weathering and erosional forces, I break up into little rocks. I become tiny and there are more than one of me. These little pieces are called sediment
Stage 2: Weathering
As I sit as little pieces of stone I become compact from the water and the wind and I become a sedimentary rock. I am pushed together and become once again a rock.

Stage 3: Water and Wind
A couple of days after I became a sedimentary rock, the sun came out. The sun was blazing hot and it caused me to turn into a metamorphic rock. To become a metamorphic rock you have to be heated up and pressed down with something. I was now getting closer to becoming molten again!
Stage 4: Heat from the sun
The heat from the sun is heating up the rock
Stage 5: Heat & Pressure
The next day the sun was shining again. I was beginning to melt, today was the day I would turn into molten. (About 5 minutes later) I have become molten, now I get to head back to my volcano!
The sun is currently melting the rock back into molten
Stage 1: Magma (AGAIN!)
Well, here I am, back at my volcano. I hope you understand the rock cycle! If you are wondering what happens from here, well it is everything I told you, it starts over again! Well, I hope you have a good day...Well, I gotta keep melting so I can go through the rock cycle!
