Know your mineral.

Know your mineral. |  THERE ARE TWO COMMONLY CONFUSED GROUPS OF MINERALS THAT MAKE UP MOST OF A GROUP OF MINERALS CALLED THE INOSILLICATES.
THEY ARE THE AMPHIBOLES AND THE PYROXENES. IN ORDER TO NARROW DOWN ON WHICH OF THOSE GROUPS THEY BELONG TO, WE HAVE TO TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THEIR CLEAVAGE. CLEAVAGE IS THE ANGLE OR INCLINE AT WHICH A MINERAL CLEAVES OR BREAKS. THE PYROXENES HAVE AN ANGLE OF CLEAVAGE AT TWO 90* ANGLES WHILE THE AMPHIBOLES HAVE AN ANGLE OF CLEAVAGE AT 56* AND 124* ANGLES. | image tagged in rocks | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

Know your Mineral.

Know your Mineral. |  THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF DIAMONDS: 

BORT AND CARBONADO; BORT IS ANY VARIETY OF DIAMOND THAT CONTAINS COLOR, WHILE CARBONADO ONLY COMES IN A BLACK VARIETY. BORT IS USED IN JEWELRY DUE TO ITS COLORED OR EVEN TRANSPARENT ASPECT. CARBONADO IS USED TO CUT OTHER DIAMONDS AND ALSO USED AS AN ABRASIVE DUE TO ITS LACK OF APPEAL AND BECAUSE OF ITS GENERALLY SMALL SIZE IN ANY GIVEN SPECIMEN. | image tagged in diamond | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
