If Bauxite a rock, why is it in the minerals section?

Good Question. I don't know, to tell the truth. If I remember correctly, Bauxite is a rock (some webs classify it as a minerals so rip), but (correct me if I'm wrong), it refers to a group of rocks with a similar composition. I dunno, hope someone else knows.

The sources I've used say that there are a couple (pretty sure it's 3) minerals that are too hard to distinguish unless you know the chemical composition. They are collectively known as Bauxite. I don't know the names of them off the top of my head, though, sorry.

Crystal quartz is essentially the normal clear form with no impurities.
i like the four piece chicken strips, with waffle fries and a cookies and cream milkshake at chick-fil-a.
