  • Module 3 Geology and Mineral Identification

    Dark heavy mineral streaks in beach sands are commonly this type of black sand too. This material is generally a combination of iron and titanium bearing oxide minerals including magnetite, hematite, ilmenite, and rutile. The iron chrome oxide mineral chromite is similar in some respects but much less common in pan concentrates.

  • Heavy mineral

    Heavy mineral. In geology, a heavy mineral is one with a density that is greater than 2.9 g/cm3, most commonly referring to dense components of siliciclastic sediments. A heavy mineral suite is the relative percentages of heavy minerals in a stone. Heavy mineral suites are used to help determine the provenance and history of sedimentary rocks.

    These heavy mineral deposits formed in beach and dune sands about 3 to 4 million years ago during the Pliocene Epoch, when the Atlantic Ocean shoreline was at a higher elevation near the present location of Richmond. Ilmenite, leucoxene, rutile, and zircon make up approximately 80 percent of the heavy mineral concentrates produced by Iluka.

    Analysis of heavy mineral distribution in modern sediments of Willapa Bay, Washington, indicates a dominance of two mineralogic assemblages, one with approximately equivalent amounts of hornblende, orthopyroxene and clinopyroxene, the other dominated by clinopyroxene. The hornblende orthopyroxene clinopyroxene suite is derived from the Columbia River, which discharges into the ocean a short

    For example, if the rocks that were being eroded contained garnet, a heavy mineral that is resistant to erosion, this mineral would be found in the beach sands. In this exercise we will separate heavy minerals, using their magnetic properties, from several sands. We will then use a binocular microscope to identify the heavy minerals in the sands.
