Minerals: Lesson 4
Minerals: Minerals are made up of various compounds. Minerals are what make up rocks. “There are about 3000 minerals on Earth” (GMB, 2008, p. 1)
Minerals:Characteristics Color Luster Gravity Crystals Hardness
Minerals: Some examples of color would be: gold- pyrite, white-quartz, green-jade, blue- kyanite, red-ruby, yellow-sulfur. Luster examples: waxy-opal, pearly-talc, glassy-quartz, metallic-pyrite. Gravity: quartz-average weight, pyrite- heavy, gold-extremely heavy
Minerals: Characteristics Crystals: cubic-six equal faces, rose- shaped design (GMB, 2008). Hardness: Mohs Scale (soft 1-hard 10) Examples: Talc 1(fingernail), Calcite 3(copper penny), Fluorite (nail), feldspar 6(scratch with glass), quartz 7(nail), diamond(10)
Group Work: Read minerals article in groups and then share with other groups
MOH’S HARDNESS SCALE Rules for testing and identifying the hardness of minerals.

Mineral Identification. What you’ll need to remember Describe physical properties used to identify minerals. Identify minerals using physical properties.
Review: Minerals T/F Rocks are found inside minerals T/F Minerals are always solid T/F Rocks always have a crystal structure T/F There are 4 characteristics.
Chapter 9: Rocks and Minerals. What are Rocks? Divide earth’s substances into 2 categories: – Living (_______) vs Non-Living (_________) Rocks -
WHAT IS A MINERAL? -NATURALLY OCCURING, INORGANIC SUBSTANCES MINERALS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF ROCKS. YOU CAN’T HAVE A ROCK WITHOUT MINERALS.
PROPERTIES OF ROCKS. 1. COLORS: 1. Rocks are different colors because they have minerals. The color of the minerals in the rock can turn it brown, red,

Minerals A mineral: –occurs naturally –Is inorganic –Is solid –Has a crystal structure –Has a definite chemical composition.
Properties of Minerals. 1. Color Easy to see but is least reliable property for ID –many different minerals are same color (calcite, quartz, dolomite)

Chapter 2: Properties of Minerals (2.3). Minerals: the building blocks of rocks Definition of a Mineral: naturally occurring inorganic solid characteristic.
I can identify the characteristics needed in order to be considered a mineral.
Minerals. A mineral is an element or compound found in the earth. The 5 basic features all minerals have 1.They are solid 2.They are formed naturally.
Minerals. There are about 3,000 known minerals, only about 30 are common. The most common are quartz, feldspar, mica, and calcite.
Minerals. Minerals: the building blocks of rocks Definition of a Mineral: naturally occurring inorganic (nonliving) solid characteristic crystalline structure.
There are about 3,000 known minerals, only about 30 are common. The most common are quartz,feldspar,mica, and calcite.
So what is a mineral? What are the characteristics of all minerals?
