Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For experts and armchair enthusiasts like, Rocks and Minerals will appeal to anyone interested in uncovering the mysteries of this subject.

A general introduction is followed by a detailed exploration of the three groups of rocks: igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary, including their formation and occurrence, main characteristics and economic uses. A number of examples from each category will be explored and illustrated. The second part of the book begins with an introduction to minerals, including gemstones, explaining their classification, occurrence, formation and characteristics, identification and economic uses. This is followed by accounts and images of a wide selection of examples.

This is a great book for fans of nature walks and nature photography, and for collectors of rocks and gemstones.

Synopsis:

An easy to use, highly informative guide, illustrated throughout with color photographs, covering all classifications of rocks and minerals with examples from around the world.
