In practically all natural and in most synthetic substances there are, mixed with the major components, impurities in minor and trace amounts. 1% of the total weight of a sample of the substance. 1%; their concentration is generally expressed either as parts per million (ppm) or parts per billion (ppb) (1 ppm is equivalent to a one gram in one ton; 1 ppb, to one gram in one million tons). Minor and trace impurities do not alter the basic composition, nor do they affect most of the properties of substances, but they may change, even drastically, some of their physical properties.

The silicates, which have the most complex chemical composition among the minerals, are by far the most common minerals, making up about 25% of the known minerals and almost 40% of the most common ones in the outer crust of the earth. TEXTBOX 3 THE STATES OF MATTER All matter exists in three states familiar to everybody: the solid, liquid, and gaseous states. The actual state in which any particular type of matter occurs is determined by the amount of energy of the constituent atoms or molecules.

Water and calcium carbonate (also known as calcite, limestone, or marble) are examples of common compounds formed by the combination of two or more elements; in water, one atom of oxygen is combined with two of hydrogen; and in calcium carbonate, one atom of carbon is combined with three of oxygen and one of calcium. MINERALS AND MINERALOIDS Molecules Molecules, the smallest units of matter that have the properties of a substance, are made up of two or more atoms. The molecules of some chemical elements, such as oxygen and nitrogen, mentioned above, for example, are made up of two identical atoms.
