Did you know that rocks and minerals support all living things physically? At this very moment, you are standing on rocks and minerals! They are a source of soil upon which plants grow. They provide the metals used to build the tallest buildings that can withstand the toughest storms. Learn how scientists identify minerals using many of the same methods that jewelers use to classify diamonds. Girls will perform tests to determine color of streak, luster, hardness and the special properties of minerals.
