What is basalt rock?

Basalt is an igneous rock that formed from the solidification and cooling of molten rock material (lava or magma). Basalt is typically a dense dark rock colored blue, grey-blue, dark-grey or black with a fine-grained texture. Crushed basalt is used for a wide variety of purposes. It is most commonly crushed for use as an aggregate in construction projects. Crushed basalt is used for road base, concrete aggregate, asphalt pavement aggregate, railroad ballast, filter stone in drain fields, and many other purposes. Basalt is also cut into dimension stone.
