    The Rocks and Minerals Quiz

    Okay guys, here is the quiz! This is obviously the first one of these quizzes I have done, so we'll see how it goes (please be nice to me )

    After each question I ask, I will give you 3 minutes to post your answers; the first poster gets 1 point, and all other posters after that will gain half a point. As always, no cheating allowed!

    Let's get started:woo:

    Question 1

    Spoiler:

    What are the three major rock types?




    Quoting everyone again as we start (if you don't respond I promise I won't quote you again!)
