However, there are some important exceptions including obsidian, which is a rock made of volcanic glass (a non-crystalline substance), and coal, which is a rock made of decayed plant material (an organic substance). Rocks are classified into three groups—igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic—based on the processes by which they were formed.
