Rocks, Gems, and Minerals (Watts Library: Earth Science)

Rocks, Gems, and Minerals (Watts Library: Earth Science) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For thousands of years, humans have used rocks and minerals for construction, weapons, jewelry, tools, and money. Today, we look to stones to provide us with such necessities as glass windows, steel bridges, and concrete roads. Rocks, Gems, and Minerals is the latest addition to the Watts Library(TM) Earth Science subset. This series takes readers under Earth's crust to explain things that have been forming for billions of years. Students will learn about the techniques and lives of people who study Earth--geologists, seismologists, volcanologists, and more.

Synopsis:

There's no stone left unturned in this fascinating examination of rocks, gems, and minerals and how humans have used them throughout history for construction, jewelry, tools, and even money.
