About this book

Presents a complete development of the new structural classification of minerals, which is based on the internal crystal structure, and therefore is its natural classification.

'The great strength of this book lies in the information in chapter 2... 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, Canadian Mineralogist, 2002 'There is no doubt that the best approach to mineral classification is one based on the structure at the atomic level' 'This book is essentially a catalogue of simple minerals organized on the rational basis of structure. In this it is successful and likely to be of value to anyone interested in understanding the similarities and differences in the chemical and physical properties of minerals.' David Brown in Acta Cryst 58:4 (2002)
