The word Mica comes from the Latin word mica meaning "crumb" or "grain" or from the Latin micare meaning "to shine". Mica is a family of minerals having similar properties: All micas are phyllosilicate (from the Greek for leaf, referring to their flat, sheet-like nature) minerals that can be easily split into flexible sheets of the mineral. Micas are often found inside other stones and give them a sparkly appearance.
Muscovite is the most common mica and when people just say mica, this is usually the mineral they are referring to.
