About this book

The classic in the field since 1848, this extraordinary reference offers readers unsurpassed coverage of mineralogy and crystallography. Manual of Mineral Science is known for integrating complete coverage of concepts and principles with a more systematic and descriptive treatment of mineralogy.

This revised edition of Manual of Mineral Science now includes a CD-ROM to let readers see the minerals and crystals, while also viewing chemical composition, symmetry, and morphological crystallography.
