25+ Extremely Beautiful Minerals And Stones

bez-imeni-1

”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.
A 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.
