Each known mineral has a specific chemical composition.
The chemical composition of a mineral is important because it tells what the mineral is.
The color of a mineral sample is determined by its chemical composition
Several minerals are evaporites, and therefore, there is not just one mineral composition but a different one for each mineral.
the composition of luster is limstone
ALL of the properties of a mineral depend on it's chemical composition.
the mineral composition of granite is feldspar,diamond,talc,chalk and other plutonic rocks
Pyrite is composed of the mineral pyrite.
The Precambrian is a geological age, not a mineral.
Among other things, yes, mineral composition is a common part of geology.
Mineral composition of granite: K-feldspar Na-feldspar Quartz Muscovite Biotite
The mineral composition of a residual soil differs and can be determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) tests
It is a mineral or a number of minerals which are part of the composition of rock.
Marble is composed primarily of the mineral calcite.
Each mineral is different...
It is most similar to the composition of the rock basalt.
Your answer depends on the composition of the 'fake diamond' and the composition of glass. Each mineral has a rating on the Mohs Scale of hardness. The harder mineral will scratch the softer mineral.
The mineral composition is called silicone dioxide. This means it is comprised of a single silicon atom bonded to two oxygen's.
How are basalt and granite diffrerent in their origin texture and mineral composition How are the similar
And their texture, which can be aphanitic, phaneritic, glassy, or porphyritic. mineral composition and crystal texture
The Mineral Composition of anorthosite is fully, and this may sound funny, swiss cheese! Hope this helps! See ya!
Magma is not a mineral because It is liquid. It does not have a definite chemical composition.
Minerals are basically chemicals in a solid form. A2. Part of the definition of a mineral is that it has a known chemical composition. If its composition were variable, it would not qualify under the definition.
Basalt varies in mineral composition. Plagioclase feldspar, pyroxene, olivine, magnetite, and ilmenite are common minerals present in basalt.
Shale has a mineral composition of clay flakes, calcite, and quartz. The ratio between the clay and the other minerals may vary.
The composition of conglomerate will vary with the rocks which make up the conglomerate.
Have no idea help me
Copper is an elementary substance - it has no mineral or any other materials in it.
Chemical composition refers to the elements and their proportions in that mineral. For instance, table salt has equal parts sodium and chlorine. Its chemical composition is NaCl. Or, quartz is one part silicon and two parts oxygen. Its chemical composition is SiO2.
Volcanic glass is not a mineral. It's composition is complex, and their is no crystalline structure.
Mineral grains are crystals or pieces of crystals that vary widely in chemical composition
No. a mineral is a compound of fixed chemical composition and of fixed crystal structure.
Mineral spirits are materials with a complex composition; they contain especially hydrocarbons.
Large amount of Quartz
Through mineral composition.
none is really sure
A mineral is defined as a compound having a fixed chemical composition ... Thus an element is not a mineral.
Coprolite is a valuable trace fossil for the archaeologist, but is NOT a mineral. A mineral must be of fixed composition, and have a fixed crystal shape.
No *mineral* accounts for that much of Earth's composition, though the *element* iron makes up 32-35% of the mass of Earth
composition of clay is complex because it is a product of weathering of pre existing rocks.Mineral composition of clay actually is of no importance
Rocks vary in composition depending the availability and type of mineral present during their formation.
This information is correct but not totally; frequently some differences in composition exist.
Sandstone is not a mineral because it does not have a definite composition, and often contains several different minerals.
Igneous rock can vary greatly in mineral composition.
a mineral is defined as any inorganic substance that occurs in nature and has a definite chemical composition.
Yes it is a mineral. SiO2 in composition. Commonly it can be coloured by trace elements such as iron.
The mineral is carbon: allotropes include diamond, graphite and coal.
Pyrite is a mineral with the composition FeS2. To be a mineral, it must be naturally occurring.
The composition of mineral waters are extremaly variable; please mention a type.
A mineral is a naturally occuring chemical compound. A mineral is different from a rock/boulder which can be an aggregate of minerals, or non minerals and does not have a specific chemical composition as a mineral does
