User: How do oxides differ from other minerals that contain oxygen atoms?

Weegy: Oxides differ from other minerals that contain oxygen atoms in that: In oxides, the oxygen atoms bond directly to one or more metals, while minerals, such as carbonates, sulfates, and silicates, [ the oxygen atoms are part of molecules in which the oxygen is already bonded to another element. ]

User: Describe the silica tetrahedron. The structure of the mineral olivine is described as isolated tetrahedral. What does this mean? Why is color an unreliable property for identifying minerals? What’s the main difference between metallic and nonmetallic luster in minerals? How are cleavage and fracture of minerals different?

Cleavage is the property of a mineral that allows it to break smoothly along specific internal planes when the mineral is struck sharply with a hammer. Fracture is the property of a mineral breaking in a more or less random pattern with no smooth planar surfaces.
