GeoJeopardy! Fridays #72

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because it's a lazy day so far.

- Rock -

More than half of sedimentary rock is this type from which oil & natural gas can be obtained

  Trachyte & rhyolite are the most common varieties of this porous igneous volcanic rock


 On average rocks consist of 46.5% this gaseous element


 In its purest form, this rock used in the cement industry contains only calcite


Chert, a hard, dense sedimentary rock, is called jasper if it's brightly colored, & this if it's dark

All the answers as well as any other previous GeoJeopardy! questions can be found over at my website by clicking the link.
