The Rock Cycle:Once magma crystallizes (solidifies) it is known as an igneous rock. Igneous rock is molten magma. If igneous rock is weathered and eroded (broken down into sediments) and then buried, compacted, and cemented, it now is called a sedimentary rock. A sedimentary rock is made up of many particles called sediments. If any heat or pressure is applied to the rock, it can become a metamorphic rock. A metamorphic rock is formed from another rock due to heat, pressure, or it went through the process of metamorphism again. This is the way the rock cycle, made by James Hutton (Father of Geology) is usually drawn. However, the cycle can work in any direction and turn into anything.
