    A rock is a naturally occurring aggregate of minerals, and certain non-mineral materials such as fossils and glass. Just as minerals are the building blocks of rocks, rocks in turn are the natural building blocks of the Earth's LITHOSPHERE (crust and mantle down to a depth of about 100 km), ASTHENOSPHERE (although this layer, in the depth range from about 100 to 250 km, is partially molten

    For example, a rock that is entirely made of albite, NaAlSi 3 O 8, a feldspar, has 0% quartz content, but contains 77.3% silica (weight percent).. It was once customary to express the chemical composition of a mineral as an oxide formula (mostly because the structural relationships between the elements involved were not precisely known), and it is still useful if one reflects the silica content
