The quality of colour illustrations is of the highest standard. The images are sharp, and the colour reproduction is excellent Min Mag ...it behooves even the veteran petrologist to have access to this new publication by Adams and MacKenzie. American Mineralogist An immensely useful book. It is the next best thing to being lead through a collection of slides by an experienced tutor... It will appeal to geologists at every level...Unlike many books written to be kept by the microscope, it opens flat. Microscopy & Imaging News
