Earth's interior has virtually no effect, especially on P waves.
Earth's interior can send them into seismic gaps.
Earth's interior can absorb P waves, but not S waves.
Earth's interior affects the speed and direction of the waves.
When radio waves are present in or around a mineral
When stable atomic nuclei decay over time into unstable nuclei
When unstable atomic nuclei decay over time, releasing particles and energy
When minerals or living organisms get contaminated
The goal of science is a human endeavor.
The goal of science is to explain natural phenomena.
Science is the same as these other endeavors.
Science takes more mental energy.
Small amounts of other elements affect mineral color.
Most minerals have similar colors.
When minerals have weathered surfaces this reveals their true color.
Most minerals are virtually colorless.
