Mineralogy
Class
Mineralogy is the study of chemistry, crystal structure, and physical (including optical) properties of minerals. Specific studies within mineralogy include the processes of mineral origin and formation, classification of minerals, their geographical distribution, as well as their utilization.— Excerpted from Mineralogy on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

NB: Minerals are pure chemical compounds; rocks are mixtures or aggregates.
