About this book

This is a comprehensive reference to 700 minerals, rocks, plants and animal fossils from around the globe and how to identify them, with more than 2000 photographs and illustrations. It is an essential reference book for amateur geologists and palaeontologists, revealing how rocks and fossils form, sites and habitats, classification, and a photographic guide. Extensive illustrated directories feature profiles of over 700 rocks, minerals and plant and animal fossils, describing their qualities and properties, and specification factfiles. It features over 1200 photographs of rocks and fossils for easy identification plus more than 800 artworks, including timescales, structural artworks of rocks and minerals, and reconstructions of fossilized plants and animals. It includes detailed information on safe extraction, home testing techniques, safe cleaning and how to display specimens – all you need to build an impressive collection.

Rocks, minerals and fossils have a timeless fascination. This expert book provides a complete reference for anyone interested in the earth sciences. The Complete Illustrated Guide to Minerals, Rocks & Fossils of the World's major feature is its two extensive visual directories – one on rocks and minerals and one on fossils – containing over 700 in-depth specimen profiles. Information boxes give facts and figures such as type and location, and artworks and reconstructions show the structure-type of rocks and how each fossil originally looked. It provides all the facts anyone needs about the hugely absorbing subjects of geology and paleontology. This impressive work is beautiful to look at and will engage every reader.
