Because rocks are made up of minerals but minerals aren't made up of rocks. Rocks are made up of little bits of many minerals. An example is granite. You know how it has speckles in it? Those are a bunch of mineral grains mixed up to form the rock granite.
There are several thousand minerals found in various rocks. The major minerals found in rocks are quartz, feldspars, amphiboles, pyroxenes, micas, and calcite, but there are many more, depending on the origin of the rock.

Minerals are found in rocks
It depends on where on the continents compared to where on the ocean floor. Generally speaking, interior continent areas display rocks of greater age than one would find on the ocean floor.
Yes. The majority of rocks from any period of earth's history will be predominantly made of silicate minerals.
Rocks near continents(on the margins of oceanic basins) are generally older and rocks near a center of sea floor spreading are younger
the minerals are:mica,biotite,quartz andolivine ;
Rocks and minerals
Rock-forming minerals 1. Silicates - are minerals which consist of silicon and oxygen with some metals or nonmetals. Some rocks which have these minerals are granite, sandstone, basalt, gneiss and quartzite. 2. Carbonates - are minerals which consist of carbon, oxygen and some other elements. Rocks in which these minerals are found include marble, limestone and dolomite. 3. Oxides - are minerals which consist of oxygen and some other elements. They are found in rocks… Read More

Because minerals can be found in water. Besides who can eat rock?
Minerals are not made of rocks. Rocks are aggregates of minerals.
Minerals are elements and compounds. The crystals that make up rocks are minerals. Minerals are found in ore, soil, and dissolved in water. All living organisms contain minerals. Any non-organic rock is composed of minerals.
