Rock cycle explanation
I think the rock cycle is a way of showing you the breaking down and process of rocks in all forms.
Limestone is made of mostly calcium carbonate (CaCO3) in the form of solid calcite and made from accumulating shells ,coral ,algal, and fecal debris
Limestone is mostly found in caves and shallow water
Limestone is also used in everyday life such as tile, and counter tops
Pink marble is formed when there is heat and pressure applied to limestone this happens sometimes when hot magma body heats limestone
Recrystallization is the difference between limestone and marble
Pink marble is mostly found in parts of Tennessee
Pink marble is used for slabs and tile
Basalt is mainly found in volcanos
Basalt is used for road base, construction projects, and concrete
Basalt is 20% quartz, 10% feldspathiod, and 65% feldspar
Basalt is formed when a volcano explodes and the magma cools then hardens just like other igneous rocks
