Introduction to Mineral Identification part of Geoscience in Two-year Colleges:Activities
The exercise uses an inquiry-based approached to overcome the fear of tackling mineral identification. Few instructions are given and students discover for themselves how to approach identification.

Subject: Geoscience: Geoscience:Geology:Mineralogy

Introduction to the properties of clay minerals part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Mineralogy:Activities
These laboratory experiments are designed to show the cation exchange capabilities of clays and how these exchanges affect physical properties.
