Types of Sedimentary Rocks

Check out the Types of Sedimentary Rocks here. Sedimentary word comes from the Latin word “sedimentum”, which means settling. The broken bits and pieces of rocks are called sediments which are caused by weathering. Sedimentary rocks are only a thin layer over a crust consisting mainly of igneous and metamorphic rocks. The total contribution of Sedimentary rocks is estimated to be only 8% of the total volume of the crust. They are deposited in layers as strata, which forms bedding. The study of sedimentary rocks and the rock strata provides information about the subsurface that is useful for in geology and engineering. They are important sources of natural resources like coal, fossil fuels, drinking water or ores etc. The study of the sequence of sedimentary rock strata is the main source for knowing about the Earth's history and the history of life. You can also compare rocks from Igneous Rocks and Metamorphic Rocks. All types of Sedimentary Rocks+ have a variety of uses and many unknown and interesting facts. Get more information about main rocks like Limestone, Coal, Sandstone, Dolomite, Conglomerate. Also get details about their Definition, Origin, Formation Process, Textures, Colors etc here.

All Sedimentary Rocks

We are providing you with a segregated list of All Sedimentary Rocks. You can check out various characteristics of all the rocks that come under this category. At rocks.comparenature.com, we have tried to cover all the rocks that come under Sedimentary Rocks+. Rocks are an integral part of our day-to-day life. It is a solid material which occurs naturally and is made up of a variety of minerals. Depending upon the formation process, all rocks are divided into three main categories; Igneous Rocks, Sedimentary Rocks and Metamorphic Rocks. These rocks are further sub-divided into types. Though all rocks look similar, they have different physical and thermal properties. We have organized information in a tabular form where you will find the origin, discoverer of all the types of rocks, list of their colors and textures and many unique and intriguing facts about Sedimentary Rocks. We are also providing you with a sorted list of countries where the deposits of that particular rock are found. Discover unknown facts about your favorite rock and find the one with attractive texture.

Know All About Sedimentary Rocks

All rocks provide evidence about the historical past and give information about the Earth's crust. From rocks, we have learned about the existence of dinosaurs on Earth which are now extinct. We also know that Earth is constantly rotating and revolving and changing and rocks are continually being created. Here you will get to know all about Sedimentary Rocks. Compare your favorite rocks and get to know more about them.
