Minerals

Main Idea

Supporting detail

  • Elements

  • A substance made entirely of 1 type of kind of atom


Compounds

Supporting details

Main idea

COMPOUNDS

  • Compounds are 2 or more different elements that have been chemically combined

  • Note : and 2 elements joined together form a structure called a molecule

H2O

H2O2

molecule of 2 Hydrogen atoms

H = element molecule

A molecule made of 2 hydrogen and 1 oxygen

Atom – compound molecule


Minerals

4 Qualities all minerals must have:

1. ## Naturally occurring –

they are formed in nature

they are NOT made by humans

* Diamonds and other gems can be made in nature but they can also be created in labs but they are not minerals because humans have made them.

4 Qualities of

minerals

2. ## Solid

- most minerals are solids minerals have a fixed, ridged shape and volume (they take up space)


Minerals

3. ## Have a definite crystal structure

atoms line up in a regular, repeating pattern.

Minerals

4. ## A fixed chemical composition

Always contains certain elements in the same proportion. They have a chemical formula.

Au = gold

H2O = water

H2O2 = hydrogen peroxide

C6H12O6 = sugar

Most minerals are compounds, (2 or more different elements chemically joined).

Qualities of minerals review

All minerals must:

Solid

Occur naturally in nature and are not man made

Crystal structure

Definite chemical composition which is usually a compound

Minerals

Create or re-draw you circle map – remember circle maps are used to define terms in

Context or for brainstorming ideas in writing

Write a definition for a MINERAL use a complete sentence

MINERAL


Minerals

Main idea

Supporting Details

  • Minerals are classified into groups based on composition

  • Silicates – form most of the Earth’s rocks

  • Oxides – form from metals and oxygen

  • Carbonates – form from the elements Carbon and oxygen

  • Native elements – copper, gold and sliver

    ***The grouping names are usually based on elements but occasionally compounds***
