What is the mean for Framework silicate, sheet silicate,and chain silicate? Give me some examples?

Quartz and feldspar are framework silicates. Clay is an example of a sheet silicate. Amphibole is a double chain silicate, and pyroxene has a single chain structure.
We will cover this later in the semester. You don't need to know all the details right now.
