Minerals & Crystals


Minerals are solid, naturally occurring inorganic substances that form the building blocks of rocks, and, therefore, our planet’s crust. Minerals & Crystals  examines a selection of important minerals that occur on Earth, how they form, their physical characteristics, and how to go about identifying them. Mineral species descriptions detail their gemological properties, history, occurrence and uses, and are illustrated with striking full-colour photographs. An invaluable guide for collectors, gemologists, students and anyone with an interest in earth sciences.
