Abstract: Minerals and rocks are formed in a variety of ways, and in several conditions. Rocks are usually an aggregate of minerals and non-minerals. This chapter examines how mineral and rocks are formed and describe the different types of minerals and rock-forming processes. Mineral-forming processes cover minerals from molten materials, minerals from solutions, metamorphism and minerals formation, and weathering and mineral formation. Rock-forming processes describe the igneous processes and rocks, sedimentary processes and rocks, and metamorphic process and rocks.
