Essentially, when a rock is placed under stress, and that stress is greater than the rock’s strength, it will fracture.
Fractures are generally produced by the action of natural stress on the rock, which exceeds the rock’s strength; however, they can also be created as a result of natural or man made hydraulic fracturing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydraulic_fracturing).
