Mineral collecting by amateur "rockhounds" has never been more popular. Old quarries, road cuts, and exposed landscapes are being examined by new generations of minerals enthusiasts. Each needs a comprehensive guidebook with clear photographs and accurate data. This is it.

In a thick but handy format, more than 700 different minerals and rocks are grouped by color (for ease of location in the book) -- blue, red, yellow, brown, green, white and black crystals; brown and gray sedimentary rocks; and meteorites for anyone lucky enough to find one.

Each has a picture -- four to a page -- opposite detailed but clear data:

  • Chemical formula
  • Hardness
  • Color
  • Density
  • Lustre
  • Cleavage
  • Fracture
  • Tenacity
  • Crystal form
  • Similar minerals and where they are likely to occur. And many will have a diagram of its crystal form -- up to four, for fluorite, for example
