Minerals are the building blocks of rocks. Scientifically, they are defined as naturally occurring, inorganic solids with a definite chemical composition and a regular atomic structure. It can sometimes be difficult to tell the difference between a rock and a mineral. Coal is an example of a rock that's not a mineral. Coal is formed from decayed plants and animals - thus, is not inorganic and not classified as a mineral. You'll learn a lot more about fascinating minerals with this kit.
