  • My mineral is copper. Its chemical composition is _________ The group of my mineral belongs to is _____. Describe/explain some characterisitcs of this group 1. ____________________ 2. ____________________ 3. ____________________ Does my mineral have cleavage, fracture, or both?________ How does my mineral reflect light? If non-metallic, is it pearly, dull, greasy, vitreous (glassy) etc. On Mohs hardness slace it has a hardness of ____. Name 1-2 minerals that are harder than your mineral, and 1-2 that are softer.
  • Gosh this project is REALLY boring. I wonder if copper really is easy to find like this website says.
  • Oh look! These doorknobs look like copper. According to my research, the chemical composition of copper is Cu and the mineral group it belongs to is Native Elements.
  • Fridges also contain copper. When you break down copper to put them in fridges to make them, they break as a fracture. Even though copper is red on fresh surface and dull brown on a tarnished surface and my fridge is white, there is still a small amount of copper
  • The toliet & shower both have pipes which are made out of copper most of the time. The pipes are metallicy, just like copper. The hardness of copper on the Mohs hardness scale is 2-3 so copper is strong enough to be used for pipes
  • In your car, you'll probably find a penny or two. Pennies are made of some copper even though copper is isometric unlike round pennies.
  • My mineral is copper Its chemical composition is Cu The group my mineral belongs to is Native Elements. Describe/explain some characteristics of this group 1. composed of atoms from a single element 2. gold, platinum, iron, semimetals- groups 3. minerals in gold groups are all soft Does my mineral have cleavage, fracture, or both? fracture How does my mineral reflect light? If non-metallic is it pearly, dull, greasy, glassy etc? Metallic On Mohs Hardness Sclae it has a hardness of 2-3. Name 1-2 minerals that are harder than your mineral, and 1-2 that are softer. Only if applicable
  • Wow, I guess copper really is everywhere. Even if it is found in large quanities and most is extracted from sulfide deposits, it's found everywhere and in small objects.
