Illustrated with a wealth of full color thin section photographs the book explains how to observe mineral . Has just enough textures and minerals to work. Could have included more minerals, but it's great for a small book.

Illustrated with a wealth of full color thin section photographs the book explains how to observe mineral and rock samples under the microscope. It covers all covers all rock types-igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic-with equal emphasis and authority, providing the student with an excellent overview of the subject. Each photograph, specially produced for the book, has been chosen to instruct the beginner and offer valuable resource material to the teacher and lecturer of geology.

Illustrated with a wealth of full colour thin section photomicrographs, and with the original images enhanced by new examples and a revised text, the book explains how to observe mineral and rock samples under the microscope. The book highlights the important diagnostic features of minerals and deals with all rock types – igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic – each with equal emphasis and authority, giving students the knowledge and confi dence to begin to identify specimens for themselves.

Do not underestimate this book if you have an interest in mineral identification from thin section. It is a very nice text.

This elegant book fits nicely in one's hand and is beautifully reproduced. It is full of clear and high quality color photographs: each photograph telling an important story. Do not underestimate this book if you have an interest in mineral identification from thin section. While it is aimed at the introductory level students and as such is very carefully laid out, it may be helpful to all optical petrographers.

Atlas of rock-forming minerals in thin section This full-colour handbook illustrates the appearance of common rock-forming minerals as seen in thin section under the polarizing microscope. It is not intended to replace a mineralogy textbook - rather it is designed to be used as a laboratory manual alongside the standard texts, by all students of earth sciences from sixth form to honours degree level. The book contains over 200 photomicrographs accompanied by short descriptions and summaries of the optical properties of the various minerals.

A Color Atlas of Rocks and Minerals in Thin Section is a clear and accessible introduction to the use of thin sections in the study of Petrography—the scientific description of rocks. Illustrated with a wealth of full color thin section photographs the book explains how to observe mineral and rock samples under the microscope. It covers all covers all rock types—igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic—with equal emphasis and authority, providing the student with an excellent overview of the subject. Each photograph, specially produced for the book, has been chosen to instruct the beginner and offer valuable resource material to the teacher and lecturer of geology. As well as being a useful teaching and learning tool, the atlas is a concise reference and review of rock and mineral identification.

Great quality

The book I ordered is absolutely brilliant! It has all the necessary info that I need for the course I am doing at University.
The only thing bothering me is that the condition the book was in when I received it. Amazon did not package it properly, and the book got wet and sustained some serious damage. I live in South Africa and it would be a waste of my time to open a dispute with Amazon. I also realise that the risk lies with me, but still I believe that Amazon could have gone through a little more trouble to package my book properly.

If you have an interest in geology, mineralogy, or are required to take mineralogy and petrology, this is like a mineral bible that will make the class much easier.
  • betelgeuze
Nice example photos and has been very handy to have in petrology lab. It's a good reference book for any geology or geophysics major.
  • Virtual
A MUST for anybody enrolled in a petrology course. I could not have survived in my petrology lab without this book!

I agree with the reviewer from Fairbanks: this book should not be confused with the Mackenzie and Guilford atlas. The Atlas of *Rocks* and Minerals tries to be too comprehensive (by including both rocks and minerals) and in doing so has lost all of the information about less common and accessory minerals that was in the Mackenzie and Guilford text. Of course, much of what's in both books is now available on the Web, but it's still hard to find large format color photos like the ones in Mackenzie and Guilford.
Another (less expensive) alternative is A.R. Philpotts' "Petrography of Igneous and Metamorphic Rocks." In my experience as a student and then a TA in a mineralogy course, Philpotts' book does a better job of pointing out the distinctive characteristics of minerals than do the photographic atlases.
I believe this book is ideal for a second year University student to learn to identify rocks and common forming minerals under the microscope.
Regardless of earlier critics, this book is only intended as a help to identify common minerals and nothing else. I personally found it very useful, the colour images are worth more than a thousand printed words.
