    Chapter 4 Rocks and Minerals

    Milky quartz is a common mineral that is found in many different types of rocks The chemical formula is Silicon oxide (SiO2) One type of quartz is easily identified by its hexagonal crystals but quartz can also be found in a large mass Quartz can be broken or weathered into the tiny pieces we know as sand

    What is quartz? Igneous rock

    Quartz is an igneous rock made out of molecules of silicon and oxygen atoms held together in a crystal pattern All of the silica and oxygen that make quartz came originally from the insides of stars and it shot out of the stars when the stars exploded as supernovas
