2: Igneous | How it it formed : Magma, or molten rock , cools and hardens | How can it be Transformed : Igneous rock erosion, deposition, and cementation to sedimentary rock . | Examples : Granite, Andesite, Basalt Lava, Dacite Lava, Pumice, Obsidian, Rhyolite

4: Sedimentary | How it is formed : Sediment deposits are compressed, cemented together, and harden . | How is can it be transformed : Sedimentary rock melting and cooling to igneous .Sedimentary rock changing temperature and pressure . | Examples : Conglomerate, Breccia, sandstone, siltstone, shale

6: Metamorphic

7: How is it transformed : Metamorphic rock through erosion, deposition, and cementation. Metamorphic rock through melting and cooling to igneous . | How is it formed : Metamorphic rocks are rocks that have ''morphed" into another kind of rock. These rocks were once igneous or sedimentary rocks . | Examples : Quartzite, marble, slate, phyllite, schist, gneiss

8: Silicate | Chemical Composition & Structure Of The Mineral: Consists of a silicon atom covalently bound to four oxygen atoms. Major Characteristics & Special Features: The physical properties of a silicate mineral are determined largely by their crystal structure. Examples: Quartz, Garnets, Topaz

10: Non-Silicate | Chemical Composition & Structure Of The Mineral: Minerals composed of chemical structures other than the silicon-oxygen tetrahedron. Major Characteristics & Special Features: Has only one anion type. Examples: Halite, Fluorite, Gypsum

12: Solidification Of A Melt | How This Occurs: The melt originally forms as heat energy is added to rocks, causing the atoms in the constituent minerals to break their bonds and begin to move freely. How Is it Used: Scientists can replicate valuable resources like minerals. Examples: Diamonds and Gems

14: Precipitation from solution | How this occurs : How scientist use process to grow synthetic minerals : Examples :

16: How this occur : How scientist use process to grow synthetic minerals : Examples : | Solidstate diffusion
