Rock Collecting

The following are some rocks that I have collected from various sites in Newfoundland Labrador. Please feel free to forward a photo of your rock collection or a favorite rock, in your collection.

Found in Manuel's River above the bridge

Found in Manuel’s River above the bridge.size: approx 1 inch. This rock may have begun it’s journey thousands of years ago. What a story it could tell. I can only imagine…

What type of rock is this. I think it’s Igneous  Link to site in blue
Igneous rocks are formed when magma (molten rock deep within the earth) cools and hardens. Sometimes the magma cools inside the earth, and other times it erupts onto the surface from volcanoes (in this case, it is called lava). When lava cools very quickly, no crystals form and the rock looks shiny and glasslike. Sometimes gas bubbles are trapped in the rock during the cooling process, leaving tiny holes and spaces in the rock.
