Dana`s Textbook of Mineralogy (With Extended Treatise on Crystallography and Physical Mineralogy), (Fourth Edition)

by William E. Ford

Condition: New

CBS Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd., 2006. 4th edition. Softcover. New. The attempt has been made to give a brief but complete statement of the important facts now known about all well-defined mineral species. In addition brief mention is made of doubtful species or those which have recently been discredited. It is realized that such a complete treatment of the subject would not normally have its place in a book of this character. The paragraphs on occurrence have been largely rewritten. In the case of the commoner minerals a careful selection of the localities of their occurrence has been made in order to give only those of most importance either from a scientific or economic point of view. In the case of rarer species all known localities have been mentioned. As far as possible the locality names have been checked, the spelling used by the Times Atlas having been followed in most instances. In the case of the south-central European countries, alternative names for the same place have been frequently given. Printed Pages: 851. NA
