What kind of rocks are igneous rocks?
As soon as magma or lava hardens, it would be classified as an igneous rock.
Examples of igneous rock are pumice, basalt, rhyolite, and granite.
There are two classifications of igneous rocks: extrusive, those formed on the surface, and intrusive, those formed underground. The most common igneous rock is basalt, follow…ed by granite. Types of variations of these two alone are very high in number.
Four examples of igneous rocks are pumice, granite, basalt, and obsidian.
Extrusive-formed on surface Intrusive-formed underground
Volcanic rocks are extrusive igneous rocks.
I believe that igneous rocks are made up of igneous rocks.
Obsidian is an extrusive felsic volcanic glass.
