Apparently graphitic-like carbon particles such as shown in the image on the right have been found in space and brought back to Earth.

Carbonide minerals is a lecture and an article from the school of geology and the radiation astronomy department. It is about solid, crystalline substances that occur in and compose astronomical objects including the Earth. It focuses on materials containing large amounts of carbon that may occur on the surface of or associated with some astronomical objects.

You are free to take this quiz based on Carbonide minerals at any time.

To improve your scores, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, External links, in the {{radiation astronomy resources}} and {{geology resources}} templates. This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.
