Igneous rocks form when hot, molten rock crystallizes and solidifies. The melt originates deep within the Earth near active plate boundaries or hot spots, then rises toward the surface.
Diabase is crushed and used as a construction aggregate for road beds, buildings, railroad beds , and within dams and levees.
It is used as a base material in the construction of roads, buildings, and parking areas
Gabbro is widely used as crushed stone for concrete aggregate, road base material, and railroad ballast.

Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed of sand-size grains of mineral, rock, or organic material.
Limestone is a sedimentary rock made of calcium carbonate usually in the form of calcite or aragonite. It may contain considerable amounts of magnesium carbonate
Shale is a fine-grained, clastic sedimentary rock formed from mud that is a mix of flakes of clay minerals and tiny fragments
Metamorphic rocks form when rocks are subjected to high heat, high pressure, hot mineral-rich fluids or, more commonly, some combination of these factors. Conditions like these are found deep within the Earth or where tectonic plates meet.
