Bellwork 10-28-13
  • Obj: SWBAT explain the properties that are used in classify minerals.
  • What comes to mind when you see this picture?
  • List as many minerals(at LEAST 2) that you can think of.(example: gemstones)

What is a mineral?
  • 1. Must be naturally occurring
  • 2. Must be a solid
  • 3. Must have a chemical composition
  • 4. Cannotbe organic
  • What does that mean?
  • 5. Have a defined crystalline structure
how do we id a mineral
How do we ID a mineral?

With a partner developed some ways that you could categorize or separate different minerals?

how do we id a mineral1
How do we ID a mineral?

Scientists use mineral properties to ID minerals,Some of these properties include:

Color

Streak

Cleavage

  • Luster
  • Hardness
mineral c o l o r
Mineral Color

Describe the color of the mineral

Azurite is blue

Corundum (ruby) is red

mineral streak
MineralStreak

Describe the color of the streak on a piece of porcelain.

Hematite has a RED streak

mineral cleavage
Mineral Cleavage
  • Cleavage is the tendency of a mineral to cleave, or break, along flat, even surfaces.
  • Gypsum has ONE plane of cleavage
  • Salt has CUBIC cleavage
mineral luster
MineralLuster
  • Luster is used to describe how light is reflected from the surface of a mineral.

Luster can be:

Metallic

Earthy

Glassy

mineral hardness
MineralHARDNESS
  • Hardness is a measure of the resistance of a mineral to being scratched.
  • It is measured on a scale from 1 to 10
  • -Your finger nail has a hardness of 2-2.5
  • -Acopper penny has a hardness of 3.5
  • -A iron nailhas a hardness of 4.5
  • -Glass has a hardness of 5.5
  • -Minerals that are harder can SCRATCH other softer minerals

Obj: SWBAT explain the properties that are used in classifying minerals and apply the hardness test.

  • Is Jell-O a mineral? What classifies a mineral?
  • What are the 5 properties of minerals we have taken notes on, explain each.

-Apatite and hematite have a hardness of 5

  • Hematite beads 

Your teeth are made of hydroxyl apatite!

6 on the hardness scale

-Feldspar and Pyrite have a hardness of 6

*Chalcopyrite is an important ore of Copper

7 on the hardness scale
#7 on the hardness scale

Quartz has a hardness of 7, and is used to make glass, watches, lasers, abrasives, and many other things!

8 on the hardness scale
#8 on the hardness scale

Topaz occurs in many colors and is used as a gemstone (Novembers birthstone)

Topaz has a hardness of 8

9 on the hardness scale
#9 on the hardness scale

Corundum has a hardness of 9.

Corundumis the gemstone ruby and sapphire, it is also used to make sandpaper and abrasives

10 on the hardness scale
#10 on the hardness scale

-Diamond is the ONLY mineral to have a hardness of 10.
