Get this from a library! An introduction to rocks and minerals. [Dougal Dixon] -- Dougal Dixon starts by examining the structure of the earth and what lies beneath its crust. He goes on to show the amateur geologist how to begin to read the secret book that is hidden in its rocks.

    Rocks and minerals are the building blocks of our dynamic planet. They form the landscape and provide us with valuable resources. By studying rocks and minerals we can better understand the events that shaped and continue to shape the Earth. Minerals are naturally occurring chemical compounds that have been formed by geological processes.

They help us to develop new technologies and are used in our everyday lives. Our use of rocks and minerals includes as building material, cosmetics, cars, roads, and appliances.

In order maintain a healthy lifestyle and strengthen the body, humans need to consume minerals daily. In this edition of Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals, most of the commonly occurring minerals of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks are discussed in terms of structure, chemistry, optical and other physical properties, distinguishing features and paragenesis.

Detailed knowledge of minerals and rocks and the process of formation and association are essential for practicing professionals and advanced students. This book is designed as an accessible, step-by-step guide to exploring, retaining, and implementing the core concepts of mineral and hydrocarbon exploration, mining, and extraction.

After a brief introduction to the Rock Cycle, this text presents the physical properties of minerals and an introduction to crystallography. The most important rock-forming minerals are then dealt with in a systematic way, followed by the three main rock groups – igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic/5(34).

This book presents a translation and update of the classic German textbook of Mineralogy and Petrology that has been published for decades.

It provides an introduction to mineralogy, petrology, and geochemistry, discussing the principles of mineralogy, including crystallography, chemical bonding, and physical properties, and the genesis of minerals in a didactic and understandable way.

Rocks are mixtures, or aggregates, of different minerals. They are divided into three categories based on how different rocks are formed: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Igneous rocks are formed when hot magma from volcanoes is rapidly cooled, either by hitting underground air pockets or by flowing from the mouth of a volcano as lava.

There are thousands of minerals, although only a few dozen are mentioned in this book. In nature, minerals are found in rocks, and the vast majority of rocks are composed of at least a few different minerals.

A close-up view of granite, a common rock, is shown in Figure \(\PageIndex{2}\). Although a hand-sized piece of granite may have. An Introduction to Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. Winter. Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals Third edition by Deer, W.

• Rocks analyzed during NASA's Pathfinder expedition to Mars were found to be similar to common rocks on Earth. When NASA’s Pathfinder spacecraft landed on Mars on July 4,it released a "rover," a small vehicle called Sojourner.Minerals and Rocks 13 Introduction Fig.

The Rock Cycle The cycle does not always follow the central circular course. Sedimentary rocks can be weathered and eroded and form new sediments. Metamorphic rocks can likewise form sedimentary rocks.

Rocks can be metamorphosed more than once. Igneous rocks can be metamorphosed.
