What is the Earth made of?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What is the Earth made of?       
What is the Earth made of? The Earth is made up of elements. These are the simplest possible substances, which are composed of one kind of atom. Elements cannot normally be broken down into other substances, except under the special conditions that you might find inside the hot core of a star.

A total of 92 different elements are found in nature. Other elements can be made in laboratories, but they have only a very short life.

Minerals, which make up the solid surface of the Earth, consist mostly of combinations of elements. The minerals gold, diamond and graphite are examples of single elements, while most others contain several elements.
