Minerals are everywhere in our lives--underfoot, in our home, in our jewelry, and even in our bones. Still, students may have only a vague idea of what a mineral is. This show explains in depth, the chemical structure of minerals, and looks at properties geologists use to identify them, such as hardness, luster, and crystal form. The show explains the relationship between minerals and rocks, and how we obtain minerals of value to us, and how minerals grow into crystals. From quartz to gold, graphite to calcite, table salt to diamonds, the vital, varied world of minerals is brought to your viewers' attention in a way they can understand.
