A mineral is a naturally occurring, inorganic solid, with a definite chemical
composition and ordered internal structure.
Definite chemical composition is when a mineral is made of the same material
throughout. Basically when a mineral is only made of one material all the way ...
A mineral is a naturally occurring inorganic solid, with a definite chemical
composition, and an ordered atomic arrangement. This may seem a bit of a
With a definite chemical composition (every time we see the same mineral it has
the same chemical composition that can be expressed by a chemical formula).
A naturally occurring, homogeneous inorganic solid substance having a definite
chemical composition and characteristic crystalline structure, color, and ...
The law of definite composition states that chemical compounds are composed of
a fixed ratio of elements as determined by mass.

definite chemical composition. Naturally occurring means that the mineral was
made by natural geologic processes over time. Minerals cannot be made.
"Minerals are naturally-occurring inorganic substances with a definite and
predictable chemical composition and physical properties." (O' Donoghue, 1990).
