Conclusion

   As you can see, there are many kinds of rocks, and they are ALL over the place. Some people even wear rocks if you think about it. From emeralds, to rubys, to diamond. From the softest rock (talc) to the most hardest rock (Diamond), each rock has its own level of durability. Some rocks can be very appealing to the eye, where other rocks don't really get anyones attention, but if you look closely, every rock is unique in its own way!
