    Hi guys, I need help with this crossword puzzle, thanks.

    1.) Rocks typically formed at or near the surface of the earth. 11 letter word, 9th letter is "A".

    2.) Type of rock which originates in the molten state, deep within the earth. 7 letter word, 1st letter is "I"

    3.) The shape of sediment grains which indicates that it did not travel very far from the source. 7 letter word

    4.) Arkose sandstone is an example of a rock whose sediment formed ____ the source. 4 letter word.

    5.) Name of rock formed usually by the remains of ancient sea creatures. 9 letter word

    6.) Terminology describing igneous rocks which originate deep within earth. 8 letter word.

    7.) The main constituent of a good piece of sandstone. 6 letter word

    8.) The chief culprit for the decay of carbonate rocks used in urban public buildings. (2 words) 8 letters and I'm not sure I think the 5th letter is "R". That's if I got the word crossing it correct.

    Thank you guys!!

    I'll give you some help, but come on! There are three pirncipal rock types. This is one of them.

    It might be rounded, it might be angular. Which do you think would be the shape you found closest to the source?

    Arkose is very poorly sorted. What does that tell you about its distance to the source?

    Once again, come on. Let's have some effort on your part. Name five common sedimentary rocks. This is bound to be one of them.

    It is the opposite of volcanic; named after the ruler of the underworld. (Which is ironi, since his namesake in the heaven's is now a kind of under world.)

    I found most of the answers by googling key parts of the questions. I learned a little bit about rocks in the process.

    I was thinking it might end in Z. What word did you have in mind?
