    There are about 2,000 minerals in existence at the moment. Oxygen is a common component of most minerals. Studies show that minerals containing oxygen make up almost half of the earth’s crust. “Quartz is a common mineral. Other common minerals are feldspar, mica, and horneblend. Many rocks are made of these common minerals.”
