Lexi, a nice question, a lot of elements are found within the form of a mineral. I shall let my team introduce the answer to this question.
Jaeda. You asked a question on crystals and why are they so expensive. This is not a science question however most crystals are minerals so this question is also addressed to you.
Cadence . You asked about talc, which is a mineral.
All minerals are found in rocks. It is thought that some are created by the magma (lava) from volcanoes while other were formed in the Earth’s mantle and have reached the surface through earthquake activity. The minerals created from volcanoes have smaller crystals (probably cooled faster), minerals created more slowly in the mantle consist of bigger crystals. All of the minerals are created by a chemical reaction.
A lot of minerals are mined, dug from underground shafts. A lot of minerals have the elements Silicon and Oxygen in them.Talc is a mineral of the elements Magnesium, Silicon and Oxygen and is mainly found in Japan and the United States.
Have fun and watch this video on minerals.
