In this assignment, you will identify some minerals. The ability to identify minerals is one of the most fundamental geological skills. It is an essential skill in identifying rocks, for one must first identify the minerals within a rock before the rock itself can be identified. Only after minerals and rocks have been identified can their origin, classification, and alteration be adequately understood. The ability for a geologist to identify minerals by using the simplest tools is often a necessity, particularly when working in the field.
