Quartz: SiO2.

Quartz is the most common mineral found on the surface of the Earth.  A significant component of many igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, this natural form of silicon dioxide is found in an impressive range of varieties and colours.

Galena: PbS.

Galena is the primary ore mineral of lead. Worked for its lead content as early as 3000 BC, it is found in ore veins with sphalerite, pyrite, chalcopyrite, tennantite-tetrahedrite, etc. and in skarns, as well as in sedimentary rocks where it may replace carbonate beds or be deposited in pore spaces. The crystals are bright when fresh but often tarnish after exposure to air.

Sphalerite: ZnS.

Sphalerite also known as Blende or Zinc Blende is the major ore of zinc.  When pure with little or no iron it forms clear crystals with colours ranging from pale yellow (Cleiophane) to orange and red shades (Ruby Blende).  As the iron content increases it forms dark, opaque metallic crystals of Marmatite.

Chalcopyrite: CuFeS2.

A major ore of copper.  Common in sulfide veins and disseminated in igneous rocks.
Weathering may lead to the formation of malachite, azurite, brochantite, langite and numerous other secondary copper minerals.
