What do you call Ignous rocks that form under the surface?


Mary,
igneous rocks are called fire rocks-underground,they are formed when the melted rock, called magma, deep within the earth becomes trapped in small pockets.As these pockets of magma cool slowly underground, the magma becomes igneous rocks.

I hope this helps.
