Scilicate & nonscilicate mineral

  1. 1. Scilicate & Nonscilicate Mineral Vicky Chen Annie Chen
  2. 2. About silicate mineral*What is silicate mineral? The silicate minerals make up the largest and most important class of rock- forming minerals, constituting approximately 90 percent of the crust of the Earth. They are classified based on the structure of their silicate group. Silicate minerals all contain silicon and oxygen.
  3. 3. Common sillicate mineralsQuartz Mica
  4. 4. About nonsilicate mineral*What is nonsilicate mineral? A mineral that does not contain the silica tetrahedron is a non-silicate mineral.
  5. 5. Nonsilicate mineralCarbonates Sulfates
  6. 6. Halides Sulfides
  7. 7. Differences* Silicates are found in just about every variety of rock, including sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic. The thing that differentiates silicates from other minerals is the presence of the element silicon in the matrix. It is silicon that silicate minerals are named for.
