Summary
Mighty Minerals introduces readers to what minerals are, how they form, and how we use them today. Chapters discuss how to identify minerals, including color, luster, streak, fracture, hardness, specific gravity, magnetism, and fluorescence. A colorful diagram of the rock cycle furthers understanding of mineral formation and an at-home experiment provides the opportunity for hands-on experience. Full-color photographs will draw in readers while the easy-to-read text and helpful diagrams break down complex concepts
