Sediments become sedimentary rocks when they are cemented together. Dissolved minerals carried by water are deposited between grains, forming a natural cement that holds the sediments together.

I bought the Smithsonian Handbooks Rocks amp; Minerals by Chris Pellant on Amazon. It arrived well packaged and in a timely manner. This is much more than a kids book to help with a rock collection.
The three types of rocksigneous, sedimentary, and metamorphicare all subject to processes that change one rock type into another. The images below show several types of rocks

2018 10 23ensp;0183;ensp;A pegmatite is an igneous rock, formed underground, with interlocking crystals usually larger than 2.5 cm in size (1 in). Most pegmatites are found in sheets of rock (dikes and veins) near large masses of igneous rocks called batholiths. The word pegmatite derives from Homeric Greek, (pegnymi), which means to bind together
2014 7 11ensp;0183;ensp;There is a relatively easy way to tell if minerals are industrial chemicals. Whenever there are two words on a label describing a mineral, it is a logical to conclude that the substance is an industrial mineral product and not 100% food.
Weathering is the alteration of rocks to more stable material from their exposure to the agents of air, water, and organic fluids. No rock is stable or immune to weathering.
Major Lunar Minerals. Before we discuss materials processing in Chapter 3, we need to discuss the minerals we are mining. As always, if this section gets too technical for you, please skip it and continue on with the following one.
Rock, in geology, naturally occurring and coherent aggregate of one or more minerals. Such aggregates constitute the basic unit of which the solid Earth is comprised and typically form recognizable and mappable volumes. Rocks are commonly divided into three major classes according to the processes that resulted in their formation. These classes are (1) igneous rocks, which have solidified from

One geologist spent 30 years exploring Wyoming while noting the variety of minerals, rocks and gemstones scattered statewide. During these investigations, Wyoming, which once was considered to be relatively poor in gemstones, soon became known as having the most diversified assemblage of gemstones of any state in the United States.
