There is no douth in my mind that this remains the best book made for identification in optical mineralogy. In addition to containing descriptions of optical properties for over 450 minerals, it has a easy to use system of tabels which crossreference and compare the optical properties of the minerals. This system is very well taliored and makes identification, not a dream but a lot easier. The book also has a large section on the theory of optical mineralogy and polarizing microscope. Information Rich Treasure.

Optical mineralogy is the study of minerals and rocks by measuring their optical properties. Most commonly, rock and mineral samples are prepared as thin sections or grain mounts for study in the laboratory with a petrographic microscope

Optical mineralogy is the study of minerals and rocks by measuring their optical properties. Most commonly, rock and mineral samples are prepared as thin sections or grain mounts for study in the laboratory with a petrographic microscope. Some of the properties and techniques used include: Refractive index. Michel-Lévy Interference colour chart.

Dana- Text book of mineralogy. William . esse- Introduction to optical mineralogy. Optical mineralogy by Paul Francis Kerr. are 3 most fundamental books for any one. 1 Recommendation. In conclusion we must point out that the basic text book for this subject is C. H. Leigh-Dugmore's Microscopy of Rubber.

Paul F. Kerr (12 February 1897 – 27 February 1981), was a Professor of Mineralogy at Columbia University. During the second World War, he was tasked with locating and procuring supplies of uranium for the Manhattan Project

Paul F. During the second World War, he was tasked with locating and procuring supplies of uranium for the Manhattan Project. Kerr had an academic interest in the geology of tungsten, uranium and clay minerals. He pioneered the use of X-rays in the process of mineral identification and is considered to be one of the fathers of applied mineralogy

This college text is well written. For those who have access to both thin sectioning equipment and a petrographic scope with universal stage, most minerals can be identified. Solid solution minerals, notably the Ca-Na sequence of feldspars can be quantitatively determined. Without the universal stage, much of the thin section determinations can still be done using information in this text. The first 151 pages cover principles and microscope equipment. The next 272 pages cover the individual minerals and their unique properties and identification in thin section. The index is 16 pages.
  • The book is very good. It would be much better if the photographs of the mineral thin sections are colored. During my research and then during my teaching in Master degree level of geology, the book helps a lot in identification of minerals and in other mineralogical practical purposes.

  • This is an extremely useful book to have near my transmitted light microscope, to study transparent minerals (and rocks). The book is in very good condition and arrived without any problems.

  • It's a great book for geology students.

  • Another book my daughter love. she so happy to own this book, a detail and self explanation and helps her to understand better.

  • I used an older edition of this book in my crystallography studies. It is fasinating to see the pictures. There is a complete section that was helpful on using the polarising microscope. It also has an identification guide which is useful although a modern database could also do this type of searching. A good book for a geology student.

  • As a user of this book as a student of Geology I can highly recommend it. There is no douth in my mind that this remains the best book made for identification in optical mineralogy. In addition to containing descriptions of optical properties for over 450 minerals, it has a easy to use system of tabels which crossreference and compare the optical properties of the minerals. This system is very well taliored and makes identification, not a dream but a lot easier. The book also has a large section on the theory of optical mineralogy and polarizing microscope.
