1.) Orderly internal structure of atoms-crystalline structure 2.) Naturally occurring 3.)Inorganic 4.) Solid 5.) Have a definite chemical composition
Minerals are found at a layer called crust
The majority of minerals found on Earth are silicates and oxides. Carbonates, sulfides, and sulfates are also important minerals in the Earth's crust.
The hardest natural occurring mineral is the diamond.
Not mica because it is like a small slate. I suggest gold
