Why doesn't the ESRT chart give characteristics for every mineral found on earth?
There are nearly 2,500 recognized minerals on Earth.
Minerals are found at a layer called crust
The hardest natural occurring mineral is the diamond.
The Earth is formed out of layers of rock, and those layers are packed tight with minerals. Aluminum, barium, chromite, cobalt, copper, gallium, gold, iron ore, lead, nick…el, quartz, silver, titanium and zinc are all found in the Earthâ??s surface.
felds and quartz
This affirmation is not true; nitrogen exist only in some minerals (see the list below).
The majority of minerals found on Earth are silicates and oxides. Carbonates, sulfides, and sulfates are also important minerals in the Earth's crust.
Not all of them but a good deal.
Natural minerals are found in the Earth (as opposed to being in the air, for example).
Minerals make up the rocks of earth, so minerals are found wherever there are rocks at the surface. Water too is a mineral so this includes the oceans.
