Granite is a rock, not a mineral!
Granite is a rock consisting of an interlocking mix of different mineral crystals.
it is a rock and a mineral i know there is granite in Massachusetts
Niether. Granite is a rock, not a mineral. The minerals found in granite are non-metallic.
Granite is a rock with large mineral grains.
No, granite is not an ore mineral. Ores are the rock form of certain metals.
Granite is an igneous rock with visible mineral crystals.
Granite is typically composed of quartz, mica, and feldspar.
Granite is a rock made of several minerals; Quartz, Feldspar, Hornblende, Mica brown.
It is a very common igneous rock.
The quartz in granite is the most resistant component to weathering.
Granite meets the definition of an igneous rock in that its mineral constituents have crystallized from the cooling of molten material (magma).
no, quartz is much more fragile. Granite may contain quartz, but granite is igneous rock
Granite is an igneous rock. It is commonly formed from the following minerals. Quartz, potassium and Plagioclase Feldspars and Biotite Mica.
It is related in that quartz is a common rock forming mineral, and appears in granite along with many other forms of rock.
Granite is a type of igneous rock. It mainly contain three types of crystallized mineral: quartz, mica, and feldspar. The word "granite" does not stand for any one type of those minerals, nor does it stand for the ore of any of those minerals, but the kind of rock with all these mineral crystals interlocking together.
Granite is a Rock type.Granite is a coarse grained rock made up of the following minerals:-Potassium feldsparplagioclase feldsparquartzmuscovitebiotitehornblende-type amphiboles.
Basalt is generally darker than granite due to mineral composition.
No. Granite is intrusive igneous felsic rock composed of a variety of minerals including quartz, mica, and feldspar.
Hornblende is only an accessory mineral in granite, so its less than 5% of the total rock.
Intrusive igneous rocks, like granite.
Feldspar is a mineral that is found in igneous rocks. Potassium feldspar is one of the minerals in granite, while plagioclase feldspar is found in andesitic rock.
Intrusive igneous rock like granite has larger mineral crystals, owing to the longer amount of time spent cooling.
