We need a list of textures, obviously. It may get to the point where it is efficient to also have lists (including detailed explanations) of metamorphic textures and igneous textures. Especially metamorphic textures, as these are quite complex, and provide considerable information on the rocks - more than most igneous textures such as porphyritic textures. I have made a start, but this obviously needs a lot of work. Rolinator 07:54, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Specular points to wrong page?[edit]

Other links give me pics about rocks or minerals, so this one is wrong? Stevemiller (talk) 06:48, 6 November 2016 (UTC)

Better way to sort?[edit]

I imagine there's a better way to sort this page, as alphabetical is hardly useful unless you know exactly what you're looking for. (at which point, the user would just use the search bar or cmd+f on this page)

We could sort these by crystal size, or any other attribute listed in this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by This-is-name (talkcontribs) 14:22, 10 July 2017 (UTC)

Thanks for raising this point. I suggest a sedimentary, igneous (intrusive), igneous (extrusive) and metamorphic rock classification, with each section then sorted alphabetically. GeoWriter (talk) 20:06, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
