  • These rocks often contain crystals of different minerals.
  • Granite and basalt are examples of Igneous Rocks.

Metamorphic Rocks

  • Metamorphic rocks are formed out of Sedimentary and Igneous Rocks under extreme heat and pressure conditions.
  • Thus, the Metamorphic Rocks are the altered forms of Igneous and Sedimentary Rocks.
  • Granite for example changes into Gneiss and Coal into Diamond.
