Lithosphere is very important because it contains large amounts of resources. The majority of supplies that one uses are mostly supplied from lithosphere.

Lithosphere serves as:

  • sources of minerals - minerals supply the basic materials required for making a variety of commodities which are used daily
  • sources of fuel - such as coal, petroleum, and a natural gas, without these fuels, human life would have been impossible
