About this book

This standard book on minerals, first published in 1882, has been completely revised and updated for the first time in 20 years. Silicate minerals are now described in a separate chapter, using crystal-chemical sub-divisions. Non-silicates are treated under the Dana system of classification. The existing classification, based on principal economic elements, has been retained and modernized to assist both the geochemical analyst and the economic geologist needing to know the various minerals associated with a particular element. Each element's world production totals and uses are included. Other revisions to the text have also been made. For over a century Rutley's Elements of Mineralogy has served as an important compendium of key information about minerals and as a widely adopted teaching text.

Media reviews

"[...] a must for all geologists at whatever level. Previous editions have been extensively used, and this one is no exception. The changes and additions have improved the book and brought it right up to date both in content and style, and it is sensibly priced for today's undergraduate and highly recommended."
