It takes years of study to be able to accurately identify a mystery rock and even then rockhounds want to know tooth and nail pdf the specimen came from. ROCKSAll rocks are made of 2 or more minerals, but minerals are not made of rocks. Rock Words: There are many common names for rocks and the usually give you an idea of how big the rock is.
MINERALSA mineral is the same all the way through. There are about 3000 known minerals on earth. All rocks are made up of 2 or more of these minerals. Most rockhounds start out by just looking at rocks and getting to know them. But after a while, you’re going to want to know more. Field Guides are a great source of information. There are a number of other field guides available including specific guides to fossil and gemstones.
For photographs on the web of minerals, check out the Mineral Identification websites listed below. These are the most common characteristics used when describing minerals.

They are heavy compared to other things that we are used to picking up. The average rock you would pick up has an SG of about 2. When something feels heavy, it feels heavier than expected for something of that size. How hefty a specimen feels has to do with how dense it is, its mass compared to its volume. Because of specific gravity, that means that 2 different gems that are the same size weigh different amounts. CLEAVAGECleavage is when a mineral breaks with smooth flat surfaces.
Cleavage can be described as perfect, good, imperfect, poor. FRACTUREFracture is when a mineral breaks, but the surface is not regular, does not show cleavage. TENACITYTenacity is how tough a mineral is, how easily a mineral will break, split, crumble or change shape. Each mineral can scratch the minerals with lower hardness ratings.
