My life as a rock
By: Abirami Krishnamurthy
The Metamorphic stage
Hi! I was born as a metamorphic rock. I am Rico the banded layered Gneiss rock. I was exposed to a lot of heat and pressure when I was young and I melted. I went into my second stage or magma.
The Magma Flare
When I melted into magma, I stayed there for 100,000 years. Slowly, I cooled after a long time and turned in an igneous intrusive rock. I became a back, shiny obsidian.
My Igneous Intrusive life
Slowly, over 100,000 years, a tectonic plate crashes into me and I become a metamorphic rock under intense pressure and some heat. This time I turn into a pretty, white, marble rock.
I remain buried in the crust for 10,000,000 years. I am still a metamorphic rock.
For 1,000 years, I was exposed to the surface. I slowly became sediment.
As sediment I get absorbed into the roots of a yellow dandelion.
For 1001 years I go back and forth from being a plant and animal. Eventually I get buried as sediment and become a sedimentary rock called flint.
As flint I just stay buried for 10,000,000 years
Here comes the end to my story: My Life as a Rock
