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