Introduction to Mineralogy Book Review:

Minerals are formed through various processes such as sublimation from volcanic gases, crystallization from an igneous magma or lava, recrystallization due to metasomatism and metamorphic processes, besides many others. Minerals can be classified into different groups such as carbonates, sulfides, phosphates, silicates, halides, chromates, etc. Mineralogy is a field of geology. It is concerned with the scientific study of the crystal structure, chemistry and physical properties of minerals. The classification of minerals, processes of origin, formation, geographical distribution and utilization are also within the scope of this field. The properties of minerals such as density, solubility, radioactivity, mechanical cohesion, etc. are studied in detail. This book unfolds the innovative aspects of mineralogy, which will be crucial for the holistic understanding of the subject matter. The topics included in this book are of the utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to the readers. It will serve as a reference to professionals and students engaged in this field.

Introduction to Mineralogy Book Review:

The first edition of this book has been out of print for seven years. The ques tion as to whether a new edition should be produced was answered affirmatively on many counts. I think that the considerations which led me to write this book in 1949 are still valid (see Preface to the First Edition). Moreover, a description of those areas of interest which together comprise the field of Mineralogy seems to be more necessary than ever, because of the rapid advances which have been made. Due to the rapid extension of our knowledge, I did not dare again to treat the whole field by myself. Accordingly, Professor ZEMANN kindly agreed to revise the first part of the book dealing with Crystallography. He made many important corrections. In Part II the basic question arose as to whether the physical-chemical approach to rock forming processes, becoming more and more important, required inclusive treatment of the fundamentals of physical chemistry in the book. I see certain dangers in trying to produce a petrology text which is physical chemically self-sufficient. Thus, I retain the same opinion which prevailed when I wrote the previous edition; namely that the necessary basic knowledge should be acquired in lectures and laboratory classes in physics, chemistry, and physical chemistry, and with the help of standard literature dealing with these subjects. This back ground is, therefore, presumed and fundamentals are only referred to occasionally.

Introduction to Optical Mineralogy and Petrography - The Practical Methods of Identifying Minerals in Thin Section with the Microscope and the Princip Book Review:

This early work on mineralogy and petrography is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains details on polarizing microscopes, mineral determination, igneous rock types, geological mapping and much more. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone interested in geology. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

A Practical Introduction to Optical Mineralogy Book Review:

Microscopy is a servant of all the sciences, and the microscopic examina tion of minerals is an important technique which should be mastered by all students of geology early in their careers. Advanced modern text books on both optics and mineralogy are available, and our intention is not that this new textbook should replace these but that it should serve as an introductory text or a first stepping-stone to the study of optical mineralogy. The present text has been written with full awareness that it will probably be used as a laboratory handbook, serving as a quick reference to the properties of minerals, but nevertheless care has been taken to present a systematic explanation of the use of the microscope as well as theoretical aspects of optical mineralogy. The book is therefore suitable for the novice either studying as an individual or participating in classwork. Both transmitted-light microscopy and reflected-light microscopy are dealt with, the former involving examination of transparent minerals in thin section and the latter involving examination of opaque minerals in polished section. Reflected-light microscopy is increasing in importance in undergraduate courses on ore mineralisation, but the main reason for combining the two aspects of microscopy is that it is no longer acceptable to neglect opaque minerals in the systematic petrographic study of rocks. Dual purpose microscopes incorporating transmitted- and reflected-light modes are readily available, and these are ideal for the study of polished thin sections.

Structural Mineralogy Book Review:

This work presents a novel pure structural classification of minerals, based on the minerals' internal structure. In more detail, it is based on the strength distribution and directional character of the bonds. This new classification may be considered as an extension of the structural classification of silicates, to the complete domain of minerals. A complete and well organized overview of 230 mineral structure types comprizing the more common minerals is presented in chart form. On the charts, the crystal structures are presented in a number of complementary ways such as in projection, close packing, coordinated polyhedra and layer description. This work is of particular interest to teachers and research workers in crystallography, mineralogy and inorganic crystal chemistry in academia.
