The rock cycle
Stone is a recycled product. Ever so slowly, over long periods of time, stone changes from one type to another.
The rock cycle shows the relationship between different types of stone.
Igneous stone is transported by water, erosion and other natural forces. With time, weathering breaks it down into sedimentary stone. Heat and pressure change sedimentary rock into metamorphic stone.
Movement of the earth’s crust brings metamorphic stone deeper into the earth where it can be heated to the melting point. With further movement of the earth, this heated magma cools to form igneous rock.
