What ways can igneous rock form 2 ways?

Question asked by: knowitall

Igneous rocks - got to that stage of your geography or chemistry class already? Good, good.

Well here is a little information for you on the ways in which igneous rocks can form.

Igneous rocks are created when melted material crystallises, e.g. from magma.

There are two formation methods, the first is that they form on the surface and these are called extrusive igneous rocks, or they can form inside the crust, and these ones are called intrusive igneous rocks.
