Data Collection 1. Study the visible characteristics of the mineral show in the following photographs (consider only the Red colored mineral grains in the top photo) and determine the following physical properties: 1. Color 2. Luster (This property is explained on Page 74 of your lab manual) 3. Cleavage and Fracture ( This property is explained on Pages 75-78 of your lab manual. Also, see below for the “Breakage” information) 2. Here is some more physical property information for this sample obtained via mineral identification tests. 1. Breakage: When this mineral breaks, it tends to develop uneven and irregular surfaces. 2. Hardness: This sample scratches the glass plate (This property is explained on Pages 78-81 of your lab manual) 3. Reaction to acid: None (This property is explained on Page 79 and 81 of your lab manual) 4. Magnetic Properties: None (This property is explained on Page 82 of your lab manual) 5. Specific gravity: Low to Medium (This property is explained on Page 79 of your lab manual) 3. Record your observations in the space provided. 4. Keep this physical property data available when you proceed to answer next six (6) assignment questions. QUESTION 9 Select the choice that best describes the cleavage of this sample. (This property is explained on Pages 75-78 of your lab manual) O Present, but poorly developed O Present O Absent QUESTION 10 Which of the following choices best describes the luster of this sample? O Earthy O Pearly O Submetallic O Metallic O Nonmetallic QUESTION 11 estimate of hardness value of this mineral ple? Which of the following is the O more than 5.5 O 2.0 Less than 2.5 O Between 2.5 and 5.5 O 5.5 QUESTION 12 Keep the physical properties information for the sample in question available. Go to mineral identification charts, pg. #85-87, of your lab manual and determine the name of this mineral. Then, go to mineral data base pages (#88-92) of your lab manual and obtain the chemical composition information for the chosen mineral name (the chemical composition information is presented in the first column on pages 88-92, right below the mineral names). Type the mineral name in the space provided. Use the correct spelling. If the name contains more than one word use the correct spacing. Keep the chemical composition information available prior to answering the next question. QUESTION 13 Type the chemical composition (name not the formula) obtained from your lab manual in the space provided. Use the correct spelling. If the name contains more than one word use the correct spacing. QUESTION 14 Which of the following chemical groups includes this mineral as a member Mineral chemical groups are discussed on pages 71-72 of your lab manual)? O Oxide O Silicate O Halide Phosphate O Native Element Hydroxide O Sulfide O Carbonate O Sulfate
