So you think mere rocks can’t kill you? Think again! Here are 10 Earth’s deadliest minerals!

 

 

1. Orpiment
What could be worse than pure arsenic? Turns out it’s a combo of arsenic and sulfur. Guess, just guess what it does to you if you so much as hold it in your hands!

 

 

2. Coloradoite
This thing will poison you like it’s nobody’s business, thanks to having extremely toxic components like mercury and tellurium. Both of which are pretty rare, and when combined – deadly as hell.

3. Arsenopyrite
Whatever you do, do not pick this shiny piece of metal! If it heats up even by a few degrees, Arsenopyrite will start spewing lethally toxic and carcinogenic vapors.

 

 

4. Torbernite
If hell was real, this mineral would be straight from down there. This piece of rock is composed of uranium. No, really. When phosphorus, copper, water, and uranium, come together in certain conditions, Torbernite is born. And its vapors will give you lung cancer.
