Book Details Author: The last three chapters deal with economic minerals, resources, and Earth materials and human health. It is in the presentation of minerals and mineral assemblages over half of the book where this book is different and makes Earth science students want to learn more about minerals and rocks.

Igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks are each presented with a chapter devoted to the minerals in that rock type followed by a chapter on the processes pertinent to the formation of that rock type i.

For igneous and sedimentary rocks, a chapter on classification and geologic occurrence follows the petrology chapter. Colored photographs and photomicrographs are cleverly used to illustrate rock classifications and textures. Mineral descriptions are coupled with hand specimen photographs, crystal structure images from CrystalViewer rotatable images are available online , and pertinent mineral composition diagrams.

Although the book does not include identification tables that separate minerals by their physical or optical properties, this proved to be less of a problem than I initially thought.

Students knew what minerals to expect so they used reference tables available online or those in other books. For petrography there is a figure that separates minerals by retardation birefringence assuming 30 micrometers thickness is given and lists other optical properties.

Colored and colorless minerals are in separate side-by-side tables. A discussion of imaging software is presented as a box within the text, and a figure comparing modal abundance in thin section is included.

For crystallographers the brief discussions of space groups and X-ray diffraction will be distressing. Cambridge University Press, Price GBP The second edition is a true introduction to mineralogy and petrology.

The book encompasses the fundamental aspects of mineralogy, crystallography, thermodynamics and kinetics; it presents also their related instrumental methods and which processes are involved in the formation of rocks, that is, in essence, petrology. The book is organized in such a way that any new student or researcher to the field can rapidly acquire a lot of knowledge on the main concepts of petrology.

Each chapter begins with a brief abstract and at the end includes a quiz to allow the reader to evaluate if they have understood the main concepts presented. Each chapter contains links to Web sites offering software programs, animations and images of rocks samples hand specimens and thin sections.

Each chapter ends with references for further reading material for a deeper coverage of the subject. An index and a glossary are given at the end of the book for additional references. This textbook will allow the reader to acquire in a course semester all the basic information needed to describe and understand how rocks form.

The background developed in the early chapters on crystal structures, crystallography, how to used a petrographic microscope… is dense but the explanations are clear and well illustrated.
