Five percent of the earths crust is made up of Iron. Native Iron is rare in the crust, and is invariably alloyed with Nickel. Low nickel iron up to 7.5% nickel is called Kamacite, and high nickel iron up to 50% nickel is called taenite. Both of these froms of nickel are mainly crystalline in the cubic system. A third form of Iron-nickel that's mainly found in meteorites, and crystalizing in the tetragonal system, is called Tetrataenite. All three forms are generally found either as disseminated grains or as rounded masses. Kamacite is the major component of most iron meteorites. It is found in most chondriiic meteorites, and occurs as microscopic grains in some lunar rocks. Taenite and tetrataenite are mainly found in meteorites, and often intergrown with Kamacite. Iron is also plentiful in the sun, and other starts in our galaxy.
The first documented discovery of platinum was discovered by the Spaniards in the 1500's, in the alluvial gold mines of Rio Pinto, Columbia. They use to call it Platina Del Pinto, from platina, which means Little Silver, thinking that it was an impure ore of silver. It was not recongnized as a distinct metal until 1735. Its rather an opaque, silvery grey, and markedly dense. Platinum usually occurs as disseminated grains in Iron and magnesium rich igneous rocks, and sometimes in quartz veins that are associated with hematite, chlorite, and pyrolusite. When rocks weather, the heavy platinum accumulates as grains, and nuggets in the resulting placer deposits. Crystals are rare, but when found the are rather cubic. Most platinum for commercial use is recovered from primary deposits. Native platinum typically contains iron, and metals such as Palladium, Iridium, and Rhodium.
In terms Amazonite can be found in a Green type of formation that comes from several Microcline Feldspars. Generally the name for Amazonite is considered to have came from the Amazon as it became obtained within this river. Many people once believed that the Green in Amazonite had came from copper compounds but more recently the Blue-Green Colour is considered to come from small amounts of Lead and Water within Feldspar.
Feldspar is rather considered to come in formation with its own group that's known as Tectossillicate Minerals, which make up 60% of the Earths Crust. In general Feldspar comes in the form of a crystallization that formed by Magma as a vein structure in both Intrusive and Extrusive Igneous Rock formation, that also represent in many different types of Metamorphic Rock. Most of its whole entire formation is formed by Calcic Plagioclase feldspar that identified as Anorthosite. In several case Feldspar comes from the German word Feldspat that means field, and Spat. Its also widely found in the Province of Ontario, Canada.
This mineral comprises of phyllosilicate mineral, which is commonly found in the Mica Group of materials. In most cases Biotite is determined to be called Dark Mica that's has its own Solid Solution Series between Magnesium, Aluminous, Iron, Phlogopite, Siderophyllite, and Annite. More so this mineral was rather believed to have been named after J.F.L. Hausmann in 1847. Nevertheless, it became named in honor of French Physicist Jean Baptiste Bio, who made several discoveries of Mica, and would have also research the optical properties of Mica. This mineral it self is more of a sheet silicate that contains Silicon, Oxygen, Iron, Aluminium, Hydrogen, and Magnesium contents, which are bounded together with Potassium Ion. Many geologist refer this mineral to be also considered as Iron Mica because the iron content is determined to be more richer than Phlogopite. The properties of this mineral are identified to be its crystal formation. Biotite is known to also occur in the formation of Igneous, and Metamorphic Rocks. This mineral can also be found in Bancroft, Ontario, Canada.
Beryl is also considered as a mineral that's composed of Beryllium Aluminium Cyclosilicate, and is commonly known as the second hardest rock after Diamond. Most of this name was adapted from the Greek Word meaning Precious Blue-Green Colour of Sea-Water Stone. In general Beryl is commonly considered to be formed Mica Schist, limestone, and even granitic Pegmatite's. It also known to be formed in a Crystal like structure and has 6 different types of Beryl Cattagories. All of these are identified as Aquamarine, Emerald, Golden Beryl, Goshenite, Morganite, and not least read Beryl. This type of crystaline mineral can be found at the Quadeville Beryl Pit in Quadeville, Ontario, Canada.
Rose Quartz are more of a pale pine to Red types of quartz that are formed by small trace amounts of Iron, Manganese, and Titanium. This Mineral can also be found in the Province of Ontario, at a mine known as the Aqua Rose Pegmatite, in Quadeville.
Talc is characterized as a mineral that's considered as a Hydrated Magnesium Silicate compound. It also known as a Metamorphic Mineral, which is formed from Metamorphism of Magnesian minerals that included amphibole. Serpentine, Olivine, pyroxene, that comes in presence of Carbon Dioxide, and Water. This is also referred to as Talc Carbonation or Steelization, which forms a suite of rocks known as Talc Carbonates. Sometimes Talc is also formed with the reaction of other minerals like for example Dolomite, and Silica. Another formation of talc can be produced by the combination of Magnesian Chlorite, and quartz
Gypsum is considered as another mineral that's known to be a soft sulphate, which is strongly known to be compose with Calcium Sulphate Dehydrate It was rather believe to have came from the Ancient Greek Word that means Moon. Its formation is rather said to come in a crystalized form, and is found at the Lafarge Quarry, in Dundas, Ontario, Canada.
This mineral is rather known to be one of the major compounds of Zink Sulphide thats fromed in crystals. When it Iron Purities are high its considered to be black, and called Marmatite. Most of this mineral can usually be uncovered within patches of pyrite, and Galena Sulphides that consist of Fluorite, Dolomite, and not least Calcite. It another Mineral that's found the Lincoln Quarry in Beamsville, Ontario, Canada.
