Stanisław Lem Science Garden would like to express deep gratitude to the author of GEO -GARDEN concept, namely Prof. Jacek Rajchel from AGH University of Science and Technology, for his effort and commitment inserted during creation.
In addition, we would like to thank to all donors of rocks.
All the rocks forming the Earth’s crust can be divided in terms of origin into magma, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.
Magma rocks include plutonic rocks made from magma coagulation under the surface of the Earth and volcanic rocks from lava congealed on its surface.
Sedimentary rocks include cutting rocks from the accumulation of minerals - mainly from pre-existing rocks, pyroclastic material, products of aqueous solutions and organic debris.
Metamorphic rocks are formed as the result of transformation, i.e. metamorphoses of older sedimentary and magma rocks under the impact of phenomena inside the Earth’s crust - pressure, temperature and time.
