Description

Rocks that solidified from a hot, molten matrix such as magma or lava. When the magma cools slowly, individual components can crystalline and form coarse-grain rocks, such as granite, diorite, basalt, and syenite. When the magma or lava cools quickly, fine-grain minerals and glass-like rocks, such as rhyolite and obsidian, are formed.
