A Brief Introduction to Minerals

An introduction to what exactly minerals are and what must be true for a substance to be considered a mineral.

I recently updated this video, along with a few other new mineral videos - check them out now!

UNESCO Lecture 3 - The neglected minerals and materials of development

iCRAG, the SFI Research Centre for Applied Geosciences, in collaboration with the International Union of Geological Sciences, have launched the online UNESCO Lecture Series on Earth Materials for a Sustainable and Thriving Society.

The programme of free online lectures, beginning January 26, 2021, is designed for a global audience and will provide diverse perspectives on Earth materials and their role in society. Leading natural scientists, social scientists, and educators will look at how Earth materials are critical to a sustainable future and how the minerals sector, adhering to best practices, can contribute to society in a socially and environmentally positive way.The lectures will be delivered in webinar format by recognized global experts who will frame their presentations in the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The Series will boost knowledge of Earth materials and contribute to better informed local, regional, and international discussions.

Further info is available at:
Lecture 3: The neglected minerals and materials of development - 9 February 2021

Materials produced and consumed locally (in both developing and developed countries):
- Bulk materials, generally for nearby use
- Role in construction, infrastructure, agriculture, water treatment, etc.
- Environmental, social, and economic dimensions

- Prof. Daniel Franks Program Leader, Sustainable Minerals Institute, University of Queensland, Australia.

Mineralogy: Lecture 3, Crystallization process

Simple introduction to Mineral Nucleation and Growth


Minerals are

-Naturally occurring
- Solid
- Crystalline structure
-Inorganic compounds
- Chemical Composition

Properties of minerals


- Mohs' Scale
-(increasing order)
* Corundum
* Diamond

-Cleavage and Fracture
- Crystalline Structure
- Luster
- Odor
- Tenacity

Flexible but inelastic
Flexible and elastic

* There are many minerals present in phone, car and bridge and I only cited some minerals present.

*It is a product of Earth's geological processes
*Naturally Occuring ( natural occuring)

Zechariah 7:12
They made their hearts like flint so that they could not hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets; therefore great wrath came from the Lord of hosts.
