About this book

Comprehensive crystallogenetic overview on the morphology of minerals based on the authors' original ideas. Current theories of crystal growth are briefly dealt with, attention being paid to the classical layer-by-layer and dislocation mechanisms. The modification of crystal forms of the most important rock-forming and ore-forming minerals, presented by their principal crystal habits, is checked by both observation in their natural occurrences and laboratory experiments.


Contents

Historical background; morphology of minerals; structure and crystal habits; crystal growth in minerals; crystal habits of important minerals; applied crystal morphology.
