Sediments are the key! The Rock cycle is a process whereby all types of rock are formed then eroded and "recycled" through different depositional processes. Sedimentary rocks can provide evidence that the rock cycle exists by looking at it under a microscope. Sedimentary rocks are formed by the…

As rock particles and organic matter are eroded to a place of deposition and are covered by additional particles, eventually the weight from above will start the process of lithification. Lithification is the compaction and cementation of particles which form rock. Compaction squeezes out the fluids…
