    Mineral

    A mineral is a naturally occurring chemical compound, usually of crystalline form and not produced by life processes.A mineral has one specific chemical composition, whereas a rock can be an aggregate of different minerals or mineraloids.The study of minerals is called mineralogy.. Minerals are classified by variety, species, series and group, in order of increasing generality.

    Hornblende The amphibole mineral hornblende information

    Hornblende is a group name used to describe Ferro hornblende and Magnesio hornblende, but the term is generally more inclusive for all calcium aluminum amphiboles. (Hornblende is frequently also used to describe any dark, opaque amphibole mineral without individual analysis.) The individual Hornblende minerals appear very similar and can be virtually indistinguishable without complex analysis

    Rock cycle

    The rock cycle is a basic concept in geology that describes the time consuming transitions through geologic time among the three main rock types sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous.As the adjacent diagram illustrates, each of the types of rocks is altered or destroyed when it is forced out of its equilibrium conditions.

    rock Definition, Characteristics, Types Britannica

    Rock, in geology, naturally occurring and coherent aggregate of one or more minerals. Such aggregates constitute the basic unit of which the solid Earth is comprised and typically form recognizable and mappable volumes. Rocks are commonly divided into three major classes according to the processes that resulted in their formation. These classes are (1) igneous rocks, which have solidified from
