The third classification of rocks are those which were formed deep in the earth's crust by melting and then recrystallization. These rocks include volcanic rocks, igneous rocks of dykes and sills and plutonic rocks such as granite, syenite, gabbro and ultramafic rocks. Many specimens are discussed that are not often found in classroom labs or textbooks. This is an excerpt from this fascinating and informative video from TMW Media.
