Abstract
Rocks are made up of minerals. A mineral has a distinct chemical formula and crystal structure. When minerals form in open spaces, their crystal form is apparent. However, most minerals occur in an interlocking network with other minerals to form different kinds of rocks. There are three basic kinds of rocks-igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. Varieties of all three can be found in Minnesota.
