9780715301975: Minerals & Gemstones of the World (A naturetrek guide)

Intended for both the beginner and the experienced collector, this is a photographic field-guide to the mineral world. The colour photographs are accompanied by a brief description and a pictographic table which provides, through easily-recognizable symbols, the information necessary for identification and classification. The key to the symbols is printed on a bookmark, for easy reference alongside each page, and the corners of the pages themselves are coloured to reflect the colours of the minerals, and thus aid quick identification. The plates are preceded by extensive information on how to recognize and collect minerals, on their origin and formation, their structure and properties, and their classification, and on how to prepare them for preservation.
