Crystal Habits and Forms of Minerals and Gems

Banded minerals have narrow layers or bands of different color and/or texture. These may be a response to changes in the composition of the growth liquid, the sedimentary process, or other conditions. Mineral examples: quartz (agate), malachite, rhodochrosite, and fluorite.The photo above shows rhodochrosite cabochons that display a banded habit.

What is the difference between a rock and a mineral?

A mineral is a naturally occurring inorganic element or compound having an orderly internal structure and characteristic chemical composition, crystal form, and physical properties. Common minerals include quartz, feldspar, mica, amphibole, olivine, and calcite.A rock is an aggregate of one or more minerals, or a body of undifferentiated mineral matter.
