Manual of mineralogy

Manual of mineralogy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic in the field since 1848, this extraordinary reference offers readers unsurpassed coverage of mineralogy and crystallography. The book is known for it's complete coverage of concepts and principles with along a more systematic and descriptive treatment of mineralogy. The revised edition now includes a CD-ROM to let readers see the minerals and crystals, while also viewing chemical composition, symmetry, and morphological crystallography.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for a first undergraduate course in the topic, organized around the theme of crystal chemistry as the elucidation of the relationship among the chemical composition, internal structure, and physical properties of crystalline matter. Contains more material than can be covered thoroughly in a year, balancing concepts and principles with a more systematic and descriptive treatment. Dana published the 1912 and 1929 editions himself; Wiley picked up the ball in 1941. The latest edition is the same as the 1993 with the exception of updated references and data, some corrections, and the addition of a CD-ROM with interactive tutorials and references to them from the text.
