About this book

This book presents the third volume of a complete development of the new structural classification of minerals, which is based on the internal crystal structure, and is therefore its natural classification. Because of the large domain of the mineral kingdom, this work is divided in three volumes, in which the minerals are ordered from the structurally simple to the more complex.

Audience: This work will be of particular interest to teachers and research workers of in mineralogy, and in inorganic crystal structures in academia.

Reviews

"This volume completes the three-volume series with the more complicated crystal structures that contain H2O molecules and organic minerals. [....] These volumes appear to be the first published structure-based classification of the whole mineral kingdom. Authors who are preparing a new edition of Dana's System of Mineralogy and Strunz Mineralogical Tables should actively consider a move into the twenty-first century with a structural classification. [....] The great strength of this book lies in the information in the tables. The book is printed on good quality paper with clear type. Compared to other mineralogical books, the price is reasonable. Earth Science libraries will find a copy useful as a reference text, and the price may be low enough to justify a personal copy"
(Peter Bayliss, Australian Museum, Sydney, Australia in Canadian Mineralogist 42, 919 (2004)
