Mineral Identification In this assignment, you will identify some minerals. The ability to identify minerals is one of the most fundamental geological skills. It is an essential skill in identifying rocks, for one must first identify the minerals within a rock before the rock itself can be identified. Only after minerals and rocks have been identified can their origin, classification, and alteration be adequately understood. The ability for a geologist to identify minerals by using the simplest tools is often a necessity, particularly when working in the field. Instructions and Observations Retrieve the bag labeled Lab #5 Mineral Identification Samples from your lab kit. Use the steps below to identify the ten minerals labeled A through J. To get you started, a few hints will be provided for Mineral Specimen A: 1. This mineral does not have a metallic luster. 2. This mineral is not considered to be a dark-colored mineral.
