Atlas of the Rock-Forming Minerals in Thin Section.

Atlas of the Rock-Forming Minerals in Thin Section. Illustrated with a wealth of full color thin section photographs the book explains how to observe mineral and rock samples under the microscope. It covers all covers all rock types-igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic-with equal emphasis and authority, providing the student with an excellent overview of the subject. Each photograph, specially produced for the book, has been chosen to instruct the beginner and offer valuable resource material to the teacher and lecturer of geology.

Atlas of rock-forming minerals in thin section This full-colour handbook illustrates the appearance of common rock-forming minerals as seen in thin section under the polarizing microscope. It is not intended to replace a mineralogy textbook - rather it is designed to be used as a laboratory manual alongside the standard texts, by all students of earth sciences from sixth form to honours degree level. The book contains over 200 photomicrographs accompanied by short descriptions and summaries of the optical properties of the various minerals.

Mr.Twister
This is a MUST HAVE book if your or taking Mineralogy in college, especially if you will be taking Petrology the next semester. I got this book as I started Petrology a Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado, and I would be miles ahead if I would have had it in Mineralogy. This is the visual info you REALLY NEED! It is expensive, but well worth avoiding a lot of uncertainties, unknowns and black and white pictures in text books. It is crazy some people want over $800 for this book, but if you can find it for $100 or less grab it FAST you will be thankful you did.

Also, if you are taking Petrology then I would also get Mackenzie's "Atlas of Igneous Rocks and Their Textures" and "Atlas of Metamorphic Rocks and Their Textures" again $100 or less do not hesitate you can always resale for same price or more, but my books will never leave my purse.

If only they would reprint it and bring resale market prices down to what they should be.

Thanks

Good book for beginning optical mineralogy.

Excellent aide for undergraduate students who are learning to identify minerals. Good value for money with handy colour photographs of minerals in both PPL and XPL.

Hi, I'm a Chinese and living in Hong Kong. I studied in Earth Sciences for the second year. To me, this book safe me from the lost world in petrology. The colourful, sharp photos in the book illustrated what you'll see under microscope and greatly raise my interest. And, clear notes about the minerals or rocks you looking at have been given. They can give reader both visual and wordful memories. Some other books of this author are also good. They kept the good quality in expressing the information. This book especially good for starter in petrology.

I have taken a course in Optical Mineralogy and Petrography, and although the text used was Nesse, I believe that this Atlas was adjunct to the course. Although I do not have a petrographic microscope, I recently saw this title in a used book shop near a college town, and could not resist buying it (for about $6 I think). What a bargain. However, such an occurrence is rare indeed.
