This text attempts to provide a short account of the more important minerals encountered in many undergraduate courses in mineralogy and petrology. It also aims to present the basic data essential to the understanding of minerals, especially in relation to the environment of their formation.
This revised edition has entailed a thorough re-writing of the text, taking account of the impressive advances that have been made in all aspects of earth sciences, particularly mineralogy, over the recent years.
