I have an Earth science project due on the 4th of November so I need answers ASAP.
One problem is to classify the minerals given into their correct group. There is a long list of minerals and Corundum is one. Then we have to list their chemical formula and then if it can be classified into the "Metal Ore Minerals" group we have to list the main metal extracted from the mineral.
The groups are Silicate Minerals, Non-Metallic Minerals, Metal Ore MInerals, and Gem Minerals.
Corundum contains aluminum which is a metal but Corundum is best known for its gem varieties.
Please Please Please help me!
