Minerals and Rocks

A mineral is a naturally occurring substance with distinctive chemical and physical properties, composition and atomic structure.

Rocks are generally made up of two of more minerals, mixed up through geological processes. For example granite is an igneous rock mostly made from different proportions of the minerals quartz, feldspar and mica as interlocked crystals; a sandstone is a sedimentary rock that can also contain quartz, feldspar and mica, but as grains compacted and cemented into each other.
