sulfur the mineral native sulfur information and picturessulfur is a common element, with many uses. although most sulfur is extracted from sulfides, native sulfur, being common, is also used as a source.the fine specimens from agrigento and cattolico in sicily, italy, are highly sought by mineral collectors and command very high prices.
diagenesis porosity usually decreases during diagenesis, except in rare cases such as dissolution of minerals and dolomitization. the study of diagenesis in rocks is used to understand the geologic history they have undergone and the nature and type of fluids that have circulated through them.
weathering and deterioration of volcanic tuff rocks used tuff rocks show great assortment in composition, grain size, sorting and textures, however scaling, flaking and cracking mostly affect all of them. diverse authors suggest, that the swelling ability of clay minerals provoke moisture expansion contributing for the weathering and deterioration of the rocks and finally for the construction.

weathering weathering is the breaking down of rocks, soil, and minerals as well as wood and artificial materials through contact with the earth's atmosphere, water, and biological organisms.weathering occurs in situ (on site), that is, in the same place, with little or no movement, and thus should not be confused with erosion, which involves the movement of rocks and minerals by agents such as water, ice
physical characteristics of rocks cleavage, streak as the basic constituent of rock, minerals control much of rock behavior. some minerals are very strong and resistant to deterioration and produce rock with similar properties, while others are much softer and produce weaker rock. more than different 2000 minerals are present in the earth's crust.
