Igneous rock, or magmatic rock, is one of the three main rock types, the others being sedimentary and metamorphic. Extrusive igneous rocks erupt onto the surface, where they cool quickly to form small crystals. Igneous rock (derived from the Latin word ignis meaning fire), or magmatic rock, is one of the three main rock types, the others being sedimentary and metamorphic. Igneous rocks (from the Greek word for fire) form when hot, molten rock crystallizes and solidifies. Igneous rocks form when magma (molten rock) cools and crystallizes, either at volcanoes on the surface of the Earth or while the melted rock is. Igneous rock, any of various crystalline or glassy rocks formed by the cooling and solidification of molten earth material.
