There are thousands of minerals scattered around the world. These minerals are mostly acquired by digging into the earth, either by local tools or heavy machines. They are well sought after, not just because they are lustrous, but also because they are of great use. Most minerals are expensive and are not easily found. Silver for example, is used for adornment and for manufacturing electrical cables because of it's high conduction ability.
