25 Extremely Beautiful Minerals And Stones
Minerals are not exactly on our minds daily. And that‘s somewhat a pity, since they look so, so pretty. Here we have a selection of minerals and stones to feast your eyes upon.
From a scientific point of view, a mineral is a “naturally occurring substance that is solid and inorganic representable by a chemical formula, and has an ordered atomic structure.” Rocks, unlike minerals, don’t have a specific chemical composition, and can be made of both minerals or non-minerals. Although there are over 4,900 known mineral species, below we present just 25 of the most beautiful we could find.
