EOSC 221: Lab 4 2. Feldspar is the most common mineral in the Earths crust and is a very common constituent of sedimentary rocks. 3. Calcite is the major component of limestone and is the common cement for sandstones and shales. Calcite is derived from feldspars typically found in igneous rocks.
THE IDENTIFICATION OF MINERALS INTRODUCTION
Each sample is consecutively numbered running from left to right and then top to bottom so that row 1 has 17 row 2 has 814 etc. so go ahead and gently dump them on a table protected with a newspaper or other cover . Divide the minerals into luster groups then subdivide the

Lab 1 Activity Laboratory Manual for Earth Science
Overview. For Labs 1 and 2 you identify the 22 mineral samples in your lab kit based on observations of their physical properties. The samples include the following minerals: The minerals are divided into two groups one for each lab. For each of the groups you will receive clues to help guide your detective work.

Lab 4: Mineral Identifi ion April 14 2009 While about 3000 minerals have been recognized as valid species very few of these are commonly seen. Comprehensive mineralogy texts typically deal with about 200 minerals and even that number is greatly in excess of the number of minerals most geologists encounter in the field during their careers.

Such samples are considered to represent a mineral mixture that can be found in atmospheric aerosols. Six mineral phases were identified in the Tunisian Siwafer samples i.e. calcite dolomite quartz illite palygorskite and kaolinite and four phases in the Niger sample i.e. quartz kaolinite microcline potassium feldspar and illite.
