Identificationof rock-forming minerals in thin section is a key skill needed by all earth science students and practising geologists. This translation of the completely revised and updated German second edition (by Leonore Hoke, Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences, New Zealand) provides a comprehensive guide to identifying 140 of the most important rock-forming mineral species. The book is divided into three main parts. Part A is a practical guide to the fundamentals of crystal optics, polarization microscopy and the practical use of microscopes. Part B gives a detailed description of the characteristic optical features, special features, and the paragenesis of the most common rock-forming minerals. This well-illustrated part is divided into opaque minerals, isotropic, uniaxial and optical biaxial mineral groups. Part C contains identification tables for the minerals and diagrams showing the international classification of magmatic rocks, as well as a colour plate section showing crystal forms of minerals. The book will provide an invaluable guide to all undergraduate earth scientists, as well as to professional geologists requiring an overview of mineral identification in thin section.

This full-colour handbook illustrates the appearance of common rock forming minerals as seen in thin section under the polarizing microscope. The book contains over 200 photomicrographs accompanied by short descriptions and summaries of the optical properties of the various minerals. The photographs are taken in either plane-polarized light or under crossed polars, and are carefully chosen to show the features by which the minerals can most easily be recognized. This book is designed to be used as a laboratory manual alonside the standard texts, by all students of earth sciences from sixth form to honours degree level.

Minerals, Rocks and Maps explores the nature of common minerals and rocks. It introduces techniques for describing and identifying them, using specimens in the home kit. It also introduces investigation of their microscopic properties by means of a virtual microscope on DVD-ROM. Other materials on DVD-ROM, including digital mineral and rock specimens, supplement and enhance the teaching of the practical elements introduced in the home kit. This block also introduces the interpretation of geological maps and with the aid of digital mapping techniques and global examples investigates the relationship between the landscape and underlying rocks, showing how the geological history of any area can be interpreted from a geological map. Material on DVD-ROM also helps you to visualise and interpret geological structures in three dimensions.Unfortunately due to copyright restrictions some of the DVD material refered to in this book is not available for sale as a result study of some of the activities may be limited.
