Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral? What do minerals have in common? Not all minerals are sparkling gems, but they all have certain characteristics in common. A mineral is a naturally occurring, inorganic solid with a definite crystalline structure and chemical

composition. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals What do minerals have in common? All minerals contain one or more elements, which are pure substances that cannot be broken down into simpler substances by chemical means. Each element is made up of one kind of atom, the building block of matter.

Stable particles that are made up of strongly bonded atoms are called molecules. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals What do minerals have in common? A substance made up of molecules of two or more elements is called a compound. The chemical composition of a mineral is determined by the element or compound that

makes up the mineral. A mineral composed of only one element is called a native element. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals What do minerals have in common? In the mineral quartz, each silicon atom forms a bond with up to four oxygen atoms.

Volume refers to the amount of space something takes up. All minerals are solid, meaning each has a definite volume and shape. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company

Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals What do minerals have in common? All minerals are inorganic, which means they are not produced by living things or from the remains of living things. All minerals are naturally occurring. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals

What do minerals have in common? All minerals form crystals, which are solid geometric forms produced by a repeating pattern of atoms or molecules. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals Crystal Clear! How are minerals formed?

The type of mineral that forms depends on the elements present in the area and the temperature and pressure. Many minerals form from magma, which is molten rock inside Earth. As magma cools, the atoms join together to form different minerals. Minerals also form from lava, which is molten rock that has reached Earths surface. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals

How are minerals formed? Many minerals form by metamorphism. High temperature and pressure within Earth cause new minerals to form as bonds between atoms break and reform with different atoms. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals How are minerals formed? Minerals also form from solutions.

Water usually has substances dissolved in it. As it evaporates, these substances form into solids and come out of solution, or precipitate. As hot water cools, dissolved substances may precipitate out of solution. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals Sort It Out How are minerals classified?

Minerals are usually classified based on their chemical composition as silicate or nonsilicate minerals. Most common minerals are silicate minerals, containing a combination of silicon and oxygen. Most silicate minerals are formed from silicate tetrahedrons, each made of one silicon atom bonded to four oxygen atoms. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals

How are minerals classified? Nonsilicate minerals are minerals that do not contain the silicate tetrahedron building block. Groups of nonsilicate minerals include native elements, halides, sulfates, carbonates, oxides, and sulfides.

What properties can be used to identify minerals? Color is helpful, but not the best way to identify a mineral. The color of the powdered form of a mineral is its streak, found by rubbing it against a white tile streak plate. The way a surface reflects light is called luster. Two major types of luster are metallic and nonmetallic. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company

Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals What properties can be used to identify minerals? The tendency of a mineral to split along specific planes of weakness to form smooth, flat surfaces is called cleavage. A mineral with cleavage breaks along flat surfaces that generally run parallel to planes of weakness in the crystal structure. Minerals that dont have cleavage will fracture, or break unevenly, along curved or jagged surfaces.

Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals What properties can be used to identify minerals? Density, which is the amount of matter in a given amount of space, can be used to tell many similarlooking minerals apart. A minerals resistance to being scratched is called its hardness. Mineral hardness is compared using the Mohs hardness scale.

A few minerals exhibit special properties such as magnetism. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals Made from Minerals Many useful substances come from minerals. The metal titanium comes from several minerals, including rutile. Titanium is very valuable because it resists

corrosion and is as strong as steel, but is much lighter than steel. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company Unit 3 Lesson 1 Minerals Made from Minerals Titanium is used for surgical devices because it resists corrosion and has elasticity similar to human bone. Titanium dissipates heat, making it ideal for

exhaust pipes. Titanium is also valued for its shiny metallic luster, so it has also been used in architectural designs. Copyright Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company
