Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very good reference manual for rock and mineral collectors. The organization of the book makes for rapid identification of field samples visually, chemically, environmentally in ways which strongly supports natural exploration. Covers tools needed, basic analysis equipment, sampling protocols and much more. Think my copy may have been used by someone who fell into a stream as it was water damaged . . . otherwise a 5-star product. Wish I had this when I was a teen!

I am new to the study of geology and have found this book to be indispensable in identifying rocks and minerals in the field. It even has a few tips at the beginning about how to do tests, and each mineral suggests tests to further aid in identifying them. It has also been a great reference when reading texts about geology. I use it to look up the rocks and minerals mentioned there. Very helpful for later field study. The least I can say is: buy this book, it is EXCELLENT!!
