RECYCLING ROCKS
A sampling of posters from the hundreds online

Rocks are classified into three main groups, according to how they are formed: (1) igneous rocks, (2) sedimentary rocks and (3) metamorphic rocks.

Rocks are never actually destroyed; they are broken down and recycled in the rock cycle.
