Tim's Rock Cycle-Part Two
This storyboard does not have a description.
After millions of years, the volcano has been weathered. I have been weathered with it. I am being carried down the stream, being eroded.
I am meeting many other rocks. Some are mafic and dark. They have low silica content. Others are felsic and have light colors because of their high amounts of silica!
I am being deposited with all of these other rocks. New ones are coming every day.
We are being compacted together into a sedimentary rock. Some of our crystals have been washed away, and a new rock has a fossil.
Cementation is happening. We are closer together than ever. I have grown, though. Wait, WHEEEEE!
This has been exciting! I have been igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks!
