9 Each mineral has characteristic properties that can be used to identify it. LusterStreakColorHardnessDensityCrystal StructureCleavage and FractureSpecial Properties
10 Luster- How the material reflects light 3 main types of lusterMetallic-shiny, bright and reflectiveLooks like a metalExample : silver, copper, etc
11 Waxy , Greasy or Pearly Pollucite Glassy – example: quartz, tourmalineResinous (like resin or sap from a tree) –example: sphaleriteGreasy or waxy –example: turquoiseSphaleriteNepheline and cancrinite
12 Silky Silky – having the look of silk, fine parallel fibers of mineral example: asbestosStelleriteGypsum
13 StreakThe color of powder form of the mineral left on a porcelain plate called a streak plate (must be softer than the porcelain)The streak color is not effected by environment so it more reliable than color
14 Hardness Hardness How easily the mineral can be scratched Can be compared to the hardness of other minerals by using the Mohs scale
22 Color Color by itself IS NOT sufficient to identify a mineral The same mineral can be found in a variety of colorsThings that change colorImpuritiesExposure to air or water (other elements)
23 How Do Minerals form??? Organic Process Crystalized from Solutions Crystalized as lava or Magma Cool
24 Organic Minerals Different animals produce shells and skeletons. Examples: Clams and Coral can produce calcite.
25 Solution MineralsSolution – a mixture in which a substance is dissolved in another.Two Forms of solution MineralsEvaporation- when the water in salt water evaporates it leaves halite.Hot Water solution- Hot water can dissolve elements and compounds that form minerals once the cool.
26 Magma and Lava Formations Minerals form once hot magma or lava cool.MagmaCools slowly below the surface and forms large crystals.Example: Quartz, mica and tourmaline

31 How do Geologist Classify p.45 To Study rock samples geologist observe the rock’s mineral composition, color and texture.
32 Mineral Composition and Color Rock can be composed of one mineral or more.Rock- forming minerals.20 different minerals make up majority of the rock found in the Earth Crust.Granite- light color with high silica (made with silicone and oxygen) content.Basalt- dark color, low silica ,tiny mineral crystals
33 Texture- look and feel of rocks surface. Grain ShapeGrains-give the rock textureGrain PatternGrain Size
34 Rock OriginsRocks are classified by the way they formed.Three Main GroupsRock TypesFormIgneous-Cooling magma or lavaSedimentaryWhen small remains of plants and animals are pressed togetherMetamorphicWhen rock are changed by heat or pressure.Changed by chemical reaction

39 Log: 2/6 What are the 3 main types of sedimentary rock? What is weathering?
41 Sedimentary Rocks How Sedimentary Rock Forms Sedimentary rocks form through a series of processes over millions of years.
42 Sedimentary RocksPut the terms listed in the word bank in the proper sequence to show how mountains can change into sedimentary rock.
43 Clastic Rocks Formed from rock fragments Classified by size of fragments
44 Sedimentary Rocks pg 55 Organic Rocks How do coal and limestone form? Organic rocks form from living things such as plants and animal remains.
45 Chemical Rocks Examples Limestone formed from calcite Halite Forms When minerals dissolved in water solution crystalizes.Evaporation salt water minerals.
46 Sedimentary Rocks Form Sequence Major Types Examples Using a sequence of eventsWeathering or erosionDepositionCompactionCementationOrganicChemicalClasticCoal LimestoneLimestone and haliteShale, sandstone, conglomerate
47 Metamorphic Rocks Form Major Types Examples Used Igneous or sedimentary change due to heat or pressure.(other metamorphic rocks)Foliated (parallel grains)Non-foliated (random grains)Granite >GneissQuartzite> sandstoneMarbleslate
48 Metamorphic Rocks Metamorphic Rock Great heat and pressure can change one type of rock into another. Are these types of rock sedimentary, igneous, or metamorphic? Which rock can form from the other rock?
49 The Rock Cycle The Rock Cycle Through melting, weathering and erosion, and heat and pressure, the rock cycle constantly changes rocks from one type into another type.
50 The Rock Cycle The Rock Cycle and Plate Tectonics New rock forms on the ocean floor at the mid-Atlantic ridge. Here, two plates move apart.
