bunnyblushies asked: To the person who asked if they grew...did you mean if you had a sample, would it grow?
No, it would not. Naturally occurring rocks and minerals both form under certain conditions (relating to temperature and pressure!) and a hand sample is not in the type of setting that can cause mineral formation.
Generally speaking, once a rock or mineral is exposed, it begins to weather--break down. Quite the opposite of growing. :)
Also, glad to hear Temple has a Geology Club...I was hoping to start one at my university.
I’m so happy I have followers that know their stuff. Thanks lunalucina :)
And definitely start one at your university!
