Common sedimentary rocks include sandstone, limestone, and shale. These rocks often start as sediments carried in rivers and deposited in lakes and oceans.
What Are the Three Types of Sedimentary Rocks?
Sedimentary Rocks Are Formed from Pieces of Other Existing Rock or Organic Material. There Are Three Different Types of Sedimentary Rocks:
Clastic, Organic (Biological), and Chemical. Clastic Sedimentary Rocks, Like Sandstone, Form from Clasts, or Pieces of Other Rock.
Organic Sedimentary Rocks, Like Coal, Form from Hard, Biological Materials Like Plants, Shells, and Bones That Are Compressed into Rock.
