Rocks and rock minerals: a manual of the elements of petrology without the use of the microscope, for - Rock (geology) - Wikipedia



A mineral is a naturally occurring chemical compound , [1] usually of crystalline form and abiogenic in origin (not produced by life processes). A mineral has one specific chemical composition , whereas a rock can be an aggregate of different minerals or mineraloids . The study of minerals is called mineralogy .

Each distinct type of mineral is also known as a mineral species . [note 1] As of March 2018 [update] , there are more than 5,500 known mineral species; [3] 5,312 of these have been approved by the International Mineralogical Association (IMA). [4]

Minerals are distinguished by various chemical and physical properties . Differences in chemical composition and crystal structure distinguish the various species, which were determined by the mineral's geological environment when formed. Changes in the temperature, pressure, or bulk composition of a rock mass cause changes in its minerals. Within a mineral species there may be variation in physical properties or minor amounts of impurities that are recognized by mineralogists or wider society as a mineral variety , [5] for example amethyst , a purple variety of the mineral species quartz .

A rock is something solid that occurs naturally, so no man-made influences here. They are actually made of minerals, which are crystalline or other mineral-like substances. A crystalline mineral is something that is made of crystals, and has the same look as crystals. There are different minerals in different rocks, and because of this you find loads of different types of rocks.
