Example of igneous?
There is a rock in Yosemite Park it is called Half Dome it is an igneous rock it is made out of granite
Igneous rocks are formed from the solidification of lava or magma . When an igneous rock cools and hardens above ground, it cools quickly, resulting in a little to no grained rock. This is called an extrusive rock. An example of an extrusive rock is obsidian. When an igneous rock forms below ground, it cools slowly, resulting in a well developed mineral composition, with large crystals. Granite is an example of an intrusive igneous rock.
Igneous rocks are identified by first looking at the color index. Felsic igneous rocks contain mostly potassium feldspar. Intermediate igneous rocks contain mostly plagioclase feldspar. Mafic igneous rocks contain pyroxene, olivine, and plagioclase feldspar. Ultra mafic igneous rocks contain mostly olivine. Then igneous rocks are identified based on texture. For example, the texture of igneous rocks can be aphanitic, pegmatitic, phaneritic, glassy, vesicular, etc.
