Summary

This revised edition has entailed a thorough re-writing of the text, taking account of the impressive advances that have been made in all aspects of earth sciences, particularly mineralogy, over the recent years.

Quantitative and qualitative correlations between the various aspects of mineralogy are shown wherever possible, providing a scientific understanding of minerals

Tabulated data and optic orientation sketches at the head of each section aim to make identification of each mineral clear and accessible

Tabulations include unit cell parameters, and reflectances and Vickers hardness for opaque minerals

Selected references illustrate the different approaches to the study of minerals and include review publications of particular mineral groups

Ideal text for undergraduate and postgraduate students of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry
