  1. an idealized cycle of processes undergone by rocks in the earth's crust, involving igneous intrusion, uplift, erosion, transportation, deposition as sedimentary rock, metamorphism, remelting, and further igneous intrusion.

what is a sedimentary rock

Sedimentary rocks are rocks made from deposition of material at the Earth's surface and within bodies of water.

what are metamorphic rocks

A metamorphic rock is a result of a transformation of a pre-existing rock. The original rock is made by very high heat and pressure.
