Rock-forming and rock-destroying processes have been active for billions of years. Today, in the Guadalupe Mountains of western Texas, one can stand on limestone, a sedimentary rock, that was a coral reef in a tropical sea about 250 million years ago. In Vermont's Green Mountains one can see schist, a metamorphic rock, that was once mud in a shallow sea. Half Dome in Yosemite Valley, Calif What Type of Rock Is It? Sedimentary What Does It Look Like? Like conglomerate, but the pebbles in it are jagged and blocky, not rounded. What Minerals Make Up the Rock? The cement holding the rock together is mostly quartz, but the pebbles can be almost any kind of rock - often quartzite, granite, or another tough rock that does not easily erode into sand or silt.

NOTE: This type discussion, along with the foregoing material, is based on personal examination of numerous Bed Rock specimens since 1973. Many specimens have been seen, but there is always the potential for finding a new type or an anomaly. The format used for the type discussions and trademark designations generally follows other published studies.
Any process that exerts a stress on a rock that eventually causes it to break into smaller fragments is a type of mechanical weathering. The process of water freezing in rocks is probably one of the most important forms of mechanical weathering. On freezing, water expands 9 percent. If it is occupying a crack completely, the crack will grow. Continued cycles of freezing and thawing in rocks
rock strength. Deformation may be ductile flow or brittle fracture. Folds • anticlines and synclines - plunge out eventually, don't go on forever • domes and basins - very broad features within continental interiors • complex folds - the result of very ductile behavior.

Rock glaciers may form when frozen ground creeps downslope. They may also accumulate ice, snow, and rocks through avalanches or landslides. Although they flow like ice glaciers, rock glaciers are a combination of ice and rock, such as these Alaskan glaciers at Sourdough Peak (left), and in the Chugach Mountains (right).
It is not uncommon to have smoky or amethyst scepter-type growth on rock crystal original growth, showing that the fluids have changed dramatically. The new growth simply originates on the terminations of existing crystals. Japanese-twinned quartz specimens are known, but scarce, from Arkansas. Good quality specimens bring from a few $100 to several $1000 a piece. In the past few years, a
Type. Rock . Mineral Classification. Sedimentary. Description. The term phosphate rock (or phosphorite) is used to denote any rock with high phosphorus content.

Schist Schist is medium grade metamorphic rock, formed by the metamorphosis of mudstone / shale, or some types of igneous rock, to a higher degree than slate, i.e. it has been subjected to higher temperatures and pressures.The resulting foliation is coarser and more distinct than that of slate due to the higher degree of crystallisation of mica minerals ( biotite, chlorite, muscovite) forming
