  4. the way a mineral shines, or reflects light

  5. What is luster?

  6. the color of a mineral when it becomes a powder

  7. What is the streak?

  8. the tendency of a mineral to split easily along flat surfaces

  9. What is cleavage?

  10. jewelry, coins, metal objects, plaster, electric wire, and construction materials

  11. What are ways that minerals are used in the home?

  12. fingernails, copper pennies, steel nails, and glass plates

  13. What are tools that can be used to measure hardness?

  14. a rock that is made when pieces of sand, bits of rock and soil, and the remains of dead organisms come together and get hard

  15. What is a sedimentary rock?

  16. a rock that forms when melted, or molten, rock from deep in Earth cools and gets hard

  17. What is an igneous rock?

  18. rock that is made when old rocks are changed by heat or pressure under Earth’s surface

  19. What is metamorphic rock?

  20. the type of rock in which fossils are found

  21. What is sedimentary rock?

  22. the crust, the mantle, the outer core, and the inner core

  23. What are the layers of Earth?

  24. Weathering breaks down igneous rocks. These sediments can be compacted and cemented to form this type of rock.

  25. What is a sedimentary rock?

  26. Heat and pressure may melt a metamorphic rock, forming magma. When the magma cools and hardens, this type of rock is formed.

  27. What is an igneous rock?

  28. there is more than one of these through the rock cycle

  29. What are paths?

  30. these forces can change a rock to a metamorphic rock

  31. What are heat and pressure?

  32. this starts the change from an igneous rock to a sedimentary rock

  33. What is weathering?

  34. in order to determine what kind of mineral a sample is, you must rub it against this object and observe the color of the powder left behind

  35. What is a streak plate?

  36. test that determines a mineral’s ability to resist being scratched

  37. What is the hardness test?

  38. this type of mineral looks dull

  39. What is a nonmetallic mineral?

  40. this mineral has a hardness of 10

  41. What is a diamond?

  42. the same mineral can be a variety of these, so scientists use other properties to identify a mineral

  43. What are colors?

  44. a material made up of one or more minerals

  45. What is a rock?

  46. a nonliving solid material that has a definite chemical makeup and is found in Earth’s outermost layer

  47. What is a mineral?

  48. the scale used to determine a mineral’s hardness

  49. What is Mohs Hardness Scale?

  50. the continuous series of changes that rocks undergo
