Nature never stops surprising us with its beauty. ”Mineral” may not the first thing to come to mind when you hear the word “beauty,” and that‘s a pity because they look so, so pretty. We hope that after seeing these pictures you will find that minerals are really something.

Mineral is a “naturally occurring substance that is solid and inorganic representable by a chemical formula, and has an ordered atomic structure.” Rocks, unlike minerals, don’t have a specific chemical composition, and can be made of both minerals or non-minerals. Although there are over 4,900 known types of minerals, the ones here are just the most beautiful ones that we and our readers could find.
