    1. 1. Identifying Minerals By Loren Casteel (I really hope this helps.)
    2. 2. <ul><li>Terms To Remember </li></ul><ul><li>Metallic : It’s shiny and you could “build a bumper from it.” </li></ul><ul><li>Nonmetallic : It is either earthy or crystalline. (It looks like a common rock or a crystal.) </li></ul><ul><li>Vitreous : The mineral is see-through like glass. </li></ul><ul><li>Translucent : It’s like frosted glass; you can sort of see through it. </li></ul><ul><li>Opaque : NOT translucent or vitreous. You can’t see through it. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Here’s how it works. . . See the rainbow-colored dots appearing at the bottom of your screen? There are eight of them in total, and they are your timer. For each slide, you will have twenty seconds to identify your mineral. Write its name on a sheet of your own paper The rainbow dots show you how much time you have left. Ready?
