Conditions of Use
Well I started off in the bottom of an extremely hot magma chamber. Then after what felt like a decade I crystallized then went into igneous rock formation. This was caused because I left the magma chamber and cooled off. This called the intrusive step witch is a rock cooling below the surface and changing into an igneous rock. Then a very slow and painful process changed me into something else called metamorphic rock. This was called caused because I was put into very hot temperatures and high pressure. Then I got to hot and melted and was back in the magma chamber. Then I left the chamber and did step called uplift and exposure. Witch Is when you go through weathering witch in I got rained on and it snowed it hailed on me then I got moved for a week by wind that was a step called transportation, and weathering. By this time I was just a pile of sand this is called deposition. Then I stopped moving and became hard rock this step is called lithified. Now I am a sedimentary rock. Then I went back through the uplift and exposure stage after I went under the earth and went under high temperatures and pressure changing me into a metamorphic rock. I then back through the uplift and exposure stage again! Soon I melted and there I was magma again.
I was starting to feel at home again then I left and went out of the chamber and I did something called consolidation. Witch is rock leaving the ground and going above the surface. This turns me into igneous rock again. This time the step is called extrusive because I cooled off above ground. Once it turns into igneous rock it can change into metamorphic rock if it goes deep into the earth and goes into hot and high pressure.
Once I was cooled off the elements started to start it rained very hard. Then the wind carried me for at least a day. That was a step called weathering and transportation witch is crucial for the formation of sedimentary rocks. Then the rocks start to break apart and dissolve. After a little bit they stop breaking apart and moving that step is called deposition. Then the rock turns into hard rock that step is called lithification. New rock is called sedimentary rock. After it has changed it goes through the weathering stage again that is called uplift and exposure.
After it turns into sedimentary rock again it goes through a stage called metamorphism. When the sedimentary rocks go deep into the earth and have high temperatures and pressure it turns into metamorphic rock. Once it is a metamorphic rock and it reaches high temperatures and melts it turns back into magma. Well as time goes on this stage keeps going on and never stops that is the tuft life of a rock.
