So let’s get started with:

Basalt

Basalt is an igneous rock. Igneous rocks are natural rocks that come from the earth. In this case, basalt is 90% of the earth!

Let’s move on to:

Marble

Marble is a metamorphic rock. A metamorphic rock is a rock that can only form when sedimentary rocks or igneous rocks are heated. marble comes in many forms. some people like the rock just as it is, and others want counters or flooring.

 

Now finally…

Slate

Just like marble, slate is metamorphic. People want slate for tiles, flooring, and even roofing.
