Hematite is one of the most prevalent and useful forms of iron on our planet It is a common iron ore and is often used in jewelry and other decorative items I like its appearance silvery smooth and shiny but mostly I love the rounded blobs called a botryoidal crystal habit...

Rock cycle

The rock cycle is a basic concept in geology that describes transitions through geologic time among the three main rock types sedimentary metamorphic and igneousEach rock type is altered when it is forced out of its equilibrium conditions For example an igneous rock such as basalt may break down and dissolve when exposed to the atmosphere or melt as it is subducted under a continent...
