in reply to Wafaa, OH: Igneous rocks are rocks made out of lava, or other volcanic activity. practically all rocks found in Hawaii would be igneous for example because of the volcanoes there. I hope this helped!

Stevie, I found a orange rock . It has something marble like every little bit in it and a few little holes scattered and on one side it looks like orange red like glass looking place. and some blisters on it and looks like it s been cut in places. who can I take it too . I've had it for years. I pick up rocks every time I find a special rock. we moved to Florida. in 1994 and I love rocks. I have some I'd love to show.to see what they are. especially this one.

you can identify a rock by hardness or streak. the softest rock in the world is talc which is used to make talcum powder. and the hardest is a diamond which is used for jewelry, well i think you knew that! a kid geologist, stevie

Ur number 1 fan, Tixxy

in reply to Steph's question, you do not normally find fossils in metamorphic rocks, becasue metamorphic rocs do just that-change, as their name suggests.typically they are changed by extreme heat and or pressure, so anything that might have been there would be gone!

Jonathan, CA | (none)
I was given a fossil by some rich old lady. It's certainly a fish, but don't know any information about it I've been trying to figure out how old it is, it's species, and what it's worth. Can anyone help me figure this out?

jennifer, LA | (none)
