The micas are an important group of minerals. Micas are significant rock forming minerals being found in all three rock types: igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. The term "mica" is so familiar to the general public that it is often considered a mineral in itself.
Of course it is actually a group of minerals and most people who are knowledgeable about minerals know the three most common mica minerals: muscovite, fuchsite, and lepidolite. The Mica Group is actually a rather large group of minerals with over 30 members.
Large crystals of mica used for various applications are typically mined from granitic pegmatites. Mica grows by building up see-through paper-thin layers upon layers, which appear opaque but are in fact transparent. Mica is very metallic (containing very reactive element metals such as Potassium and Lithium, as well as Aluminium and Silica) and can be cold to touch. Mica occurs semi-translucent crystals, either flat angular blades, or rosettes or even hexagonal thin columns.
