rocks and minerals stuff

QuestionAnswer
clevage is the tendency of crystalline materials to split along a structural areas
fracture any local separation along a flat surface
streak The streak powder color of a mineral is the color of the powder produced when it is dragged across a surface
luster is the way light interacts with the surface of a crystal, rock, or mineral.
moh's hardness scale characterizes the scratch resistance of various minerals through the ability of a harder material to scratch a softer material.
crystal is a solid material whose atoms, molecules, or ions are put in an ordered pattern
elment a pure substance that cannot be destroyed only brken up.
florescent is the emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light.
Geode are geological secondary structures which occur in certain sedimentary and volcanic rocks.
Crystalization Crystallization is the (natural or artificial) process of formation of solid crystals.
solid Solid is one of the three states of matter the others being liquid and gas.The atoms in a solid are tightly bound to each other
solution a mixture, a solute is a substance dissolved in another substance,

vein a vein is a distinct body of crystallized minerals within a rock
inorganic non living things or items.
GROUP 2 GROUP 2
metamorphic rock The original rock formed when under extreame heat and pessure
ingeneous rock Igneous rock is formed through the cooling of magma.
sedimentary rock Sedimentary rocks are types of rock that are formed by the deposition of material at the Earth's surface and within bodies of water
testure rock in the mantle formed by volcanoes in tubes.
banded not found
non-banded not found
coarse grained coarse-grained description of a system regards large subcomponents
fine-grained fine-grained description regards smaller components of which the larger ones are composed.
Extrusive refers to the mode of igneous volcanic rock formation in which hot magma from inside the Earth flows out onto the surface as lava or explodes violently
intrusive An intrusion is liquid rock that forms under Earth's surface. Magma from under the surface is slowly pushed up from deep within the earth into any cracks or spaces it can find, sometimes pushing existing country rock out of the way
porphy rock is a variety of igneous rock consisting of large-grained crystals, such as feldspar or quartz
sediment Sediment is a naturally occurring material that is broken down by processes of weathering and erosion, and is subsequently transported by the action of wind, water, or ice, and/or by the force of gravity.
erosion a breaking down of a material then caried of into anthor place.
compaction Compaction (geology) refers to the process by which a sediment progressively loses its porosity due to the effects of loading
cementation Cementation involves ions carried in groundwater chemically precipitating to form pores for new mineral cements to crystallize
chemical rock mineral crystals made from elements that are dissolved in water
clastic rock are composed of fragments, or clasts, of pre-existing minerals and rock fragments
organic rock a rock made from living remains
folaited is common to rocks affected by regional metamorphic compression typical of orogenic belts
non folaited
