Difference between rocks and minerals and how to extract rocks or minerals.
A rock is an inorganic and a solid naturally-formed substance. A mineral is also a solid, inorganic, substance as that of the rock which has a definite crystalline structure
We make things out of rocks and minerals like jewelry
To properly take a rock out from the soil you loosen the soil then dig around it then pull it out gently.
Types of rocks
igneous rocks are formed when magma cools or sets the characteristics are dark-colored holes and hot.
Near volcanoes and underground
.Example obsidian diorite andesite
Metamorphic rocks are formed from extreme heat and pressure
characteristics are foliated textures random crystal orientation and mineral grains grow larger as metamorphism increases
Location: anywhere in the world
Examples marble schist and slate
Sedimentary rocks are formed from weather erosion
Location: basically anywhere
Example: coral and fossils

Basalt is an igneous rock found in volcanoes all over the world and is usually formed due to lava flow and is very abundant in earth crust basalt is used as a rock dust fertilizer for plants and people melt basalt to create pipes
Limestone is a very common type of carbonate sedimentary rock limestone is formed when droplents with calcium carbonate leak through cave ceilings evaporate limestone is found anywhere where an ancient sea existed usually on continental crust limestone is mostly used in architecture.
Marble can be found all over the world and is formed by subjecting limestone to extreme pressure or heat
marble is a metamorphic rock.
and is used for making and decorating houses and architecture
