List and describe the four types of bonds exhibited in minerals. Give an example of a mineral that exhibits each type of bond.
Why do some minerals exist in more than one color?
Electrical forces are responsible for the system of bonding that exist between minerals. The physical and chemical properties of minerals are attributed to the most part to the types and strengths of this binding forces. That is, hardness, fusibility, electrical and thermal conductivity just to mention but a few. This essay will focus on a critical discussion in describing the very types of minerals that are showcased in the mineral structure. The system of bonding in one mineral thus can be said to possess characteristic that distinguishes one mineral from the other. Also, crucial to this paper will be to look at the existence of minerals in more than one color
