About this book

Volume 5A of this second edition of "Rock-Forming Minerals" focuses on oxides, hydroxides and sulphides. Since the publication of the first edition, in 1962, there has been an enormous increase in the literature devoted to these minerals. This new edition, greatly expanded and rewritten, covers aspects that include crystal structures, chemical compositions, electronic structures, phase relations, thermochemistry, mineral surface structure and reactivity, physical properties, distinguishing features and parageneses (including stable isotope data).

Volume 5A deals with:
- Oxides (J. F. W. Bowles)
- Periclase, cassiterite, corundum, rutile, anatase, brookite, perovskite, hematite, ilmenite, pseudobrookite, armalcolite, pseudorutile, spinel, gahnite, galaxite, hercynite, magnetite, magnesioferrite, maghemite, qandilite, franklinite, jacobsite, trevorite, Mg-chromite, chromite, Fe-chromite Hydroxides (R. A. Howie & J. Zussman)
- Brucite, gibbsite, diaspore, boehmite, goethite, ferrihydrite, lepidocrocite, feroxyhyte Sulphides (D. J. Vaughan)
