15 Beautiful Minerals

”Mineral” is 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. This selection of some of the most beautiful minerals and stones in the world will be a feast for your eyes.

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 few beautiful ones.
