Minerals of the World is an attractive and up-to-date guide to more than 500 minerals from around the world. The succinct text--covering crystallography, properties, names and varieties, structure, diagnostic features, and occurrence--and the discussion of less common minerals not found in other guides make this an invaluable resource. With over 600 exquisite color photographs and crystallographic diagrams, this book is unequalled. It is set to become the field guide of choice for mineral collectors and students of mineralogy.

"Minerals of the World is an extremely handsome and valuable addition to the library of anyone who appreciates mineralogy and mineral specimens.

Harlow, Curator of Minerals and Gems, American Museum of Natural History
"This is a very appealing handbook and textbook for minerals. It is clearly and competently written. This book cannot go out-of-date. The facts of mineral structures are timeless."--Lincoln S. Hollister, Princeton University
