Rocks or stones are natural substances, solid aggregates of one or more minerals or mineraloids. The Earth's outer solid layer, the lithosphere, is made of rock. Three major groups of rocks are defined: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. The scientific study of rocks is called petrology, which is an essential component of geology.[1]
