By R.E. Stoiber,S.A. Morse

a few of the easier measurements of optical mineralogy are so distinct and strong that they provide delight to starting scholars. now not lengthy after getting to know the strike and dip of rock surfaces with the Brunton compass, many geology scholars may be able to verify exactly the identification of quartz, or the anorthite content material of plagioclase, or the magne­ sium ratio of pyroxene with the polarizing or petrographic microscope, via measuring refractive index to higher than one half in one thousand. little or no education and virtually no idea are had to in achieving those talents. yet there unavoidably comes a time while thought is required, both to get on with the paintings, or just to reconstruct from first rules what's going, while rote reminiscence fails. during this ebook we are hoping to supply either the rote tools and the theoretical historical past for practitioners in any respect degrees of expertise. We draw from numerous careers-ours, our colleagues', and our scholars' -in instructing the topic at numerous degrees of class. Our e-book is meant to serve the desires of business and forensic scientists in addition to petrogra­ phers who care for rocks. a lot of our therapy is predicated on new examine, either in concerns of presentation and within the optical decision of minerals and different materials.
