Synopses & Reviews
This book presents the second volume of a complete development of the new structural classification of minerals, which is based on the internal crystal structure, and is therefore its natural classification. Because of the large domain of the mineral kingdom, this work is divided into three volumes, in which the minerals are ordered from the structurally simple to the more complex. Audience: This work will be of particular interest to teachers and research workers in mineralogy, and in inorganic crystal structures in academia.
"The great strength of this book lies in the information in the tables. The book is printed on good-quality paper with clear type. Compared to other mineralogical books, the price is reasonable. Earth Science libraries will find a copy useful as a reference text, and the price may be low enough to justify a personal copy." (Peter Bayliss in The Canadian Mineralogist, 41 (2003)
