Another excellent volume in the e.explore series, Rock and Mineral covers a huge range of facets regarding crystaline structures, natural, and the processed forms they take when humanity turns them to ornamental or industrial useage. Covering the whole gamut of the crystaline lifespan, from liquid beginnings to cut, polished and mounted end, their forms, their properties and behaviours, habitats and homes, it's all in here.
Having dabbled in minerology as a youth, and thus being far from a die-hard rockhound, I still fell confident in saying that this book not only could, but would, give anyone a mental tune up regarding the wonders to be discovered on and inside the big ball under our feet.
A stunning and comprehensive reference volume that should be considered a truely current and validated resource. Throw in the dedicated Google-driven website, it ensures up-to-the-minute knowledge is readily available.
