Mineral Properties

Minerals are composed of the earth's elements and their compounds. To classify as a mineral, a substance must: 

  • Be a naturally occurring inorganic substance 
  • Have a chemical formula 
  • Have an internal crystal structure 
Elements combine into different molecular and crystalline structures. This determines a mineral's many physical properties. 

COLOR is a mineral’s obvious property. Some minerals such as malachite are always one color, but minerals such as quartz exhibit many colors due to impurities in their chemical structure. 

CLEAVAGE and FRACTURE describe how a mineral breaks. Cleavagerefers to a smooth parting. There are three directions of symmetry within a crystal. Not all minerals have cleavage in all three: Some minerals exhibit this property in one direction (micas), some in two (feldspars), some in all three directions (calcite). Some have no cleavage at all.  Fracture describes an irregular break on the surface of a mineral that has no cleavage.There are many terms used to describe this, such as uneven, splintery,and conchoidal. 

HARDNESS describes a mineral's resistance to scratching by other minerals, preferably those on the hardness scale. The ten minerals on this scale are: 
                                                        1. TALC 
                                                        2. GYPSUM 
                                                        3. CALCITE 
                                                         4. FLUORITE 
                                                         5. APATITE 
                                                         6. FELDSPAR 
                                                         7. QUARTZ 
                                                         8. TOPAZ 
                                                         9. CORUNDUM 
                                                         10. DIAMOND 
 Hardness means only that one mineral is harder than the other,not necessarily in equal steps. 

STREAK is the color of a powdered mineral after it is run overa rough, white porcelain plate. The streak is sometimes the color of the specimen; many times it is not (black hematite leaves a red streak). Specimens harder than the plate will leave no streak. 

CRYSTAL FORM is the geometric order resulting from a mineral'sinternal structure this has been classified into one of six basic systems—(isometric,tetragonal, hexagonal, orthorhombic, monoclinic and triclinic). The resulting crystals take on shapes such as cubes, six–sided barrels and bipiramids. 

LUSTER is the way a mineral reflects light and is divided into metallic or non–metallic. Metallic luster is obvious and is classed as either bright or dull. Non–metallic luster is more varied and is described in terms such as vitreous (like shattered glass), waxy, pearly, resinous,greasy, silky, etc. 

SPECIFIC GRAVITY describes the relative density of a mineral.This is determined by instruments but can be approximated by holding a specimen and hefting it (it will be either light, normal, heavy or very heavy for its size). 

APPEARANCE can be important if the specimen has a unique formor quality about it that is characteristic of the mineral. Among these shapes and features are: botryoidal, banded, drusy (countless tiny reflective crystals), geode, stalactitic, etc. 

OTHER PROPERTIES apply only to certain minerals, such as texture,solubility (some minerals can dissolve in warm water, others such as calcite are attacked by mild acids), smell, taste, magnetism, radioactivity and fluorescence.
