In this title the most significant optical data pertaining to the common rock-forming minerals are presented in simplified tabular form supplemented by additional charts, tables and plates useful in the determination of specific mineral properties. The tables and other data classify and briefly summarise the optical properties of each of the rock-forming mineral groups and, wherever possible, in a systematic manner. Optical details with immediate visual impact, as well as chemical data, are so presented that mineral species within a group can be readily compared. Discriminatory procedures for the techniques of mineral recognition are also provided. No attempt is made to explain optical theory as the manual is intended as a ready reference work for use in the laboratory. Definitions of mineral properties, supplemented by explanatory charts and comparative photographs of minerals in thin section, are additional aids that can be used in the course of routine microscopic mineralogy and petrography.

This is a very detailed colour atlas for ore/opaque minerals (ore microscopy) with the main emphasis on name and synonyms, mineral group, chemical composition, information about major formation environment, optical data, reflection colour/shade comparison with 4 common/standard minerals of a similar colour or grey shade, up to 5 high-quality photos for each mineral with scale, and a short description of the pictures. A compilation from some of the prominent publications in the field of ore microscopy yielded a list of 431 minerals are included in this atlas. * Concise full colour pictorial reference for scientists and geologists * Explains how to describe and identify microscopic samples of minerals * Draws material from prominent literature yielding over 400 different minerals

This full-colour handbook illustrates the appearance of common rock forming minerals as seen in thin section under the polarizing microscope. The book contains over 200 photomicrographs accompanied by short descriptions and summaries of the optical properties of the various minerals. The photographs are taken in either plane-polarized light or under crossed polars, and are carefully chosen to show the features by which the minerals can most easily be recognized. This book is designed to be used as a laboratory manual alonside the standard texts, by all students of earth sciences from sixth form to honours degree level.

This book is the successor to A practical introduction to optical mineralogy, which was written in the early 1980s, and published by George Allen & Unwin in 1985. Our intention, once again, is to introduce the student of geology to the microscopic examination of minerals, by both transmitted and reflected light. These techniques should be mastered by students early in their careers, and this text has been proposed in the full awareness that it will be used as a laboratory handbook, serving as a quick reference to the properties of minerals. However, care has been taken to present a systematic explanation of the use of the microscope, as well as to include an extended explanation of the theoretical aspects of optical crystallography in transmitted light. The book is therefore intended as a serious text that introduces the study of minerals under the microscope to the intending honours student of geology, as well as providing information for the novice or interested layman.

The second in a three-volume series, this popular and widely circulated professional handbook describes the theories and practices of today's criminalistics, and covers a wide range of subject areas relevant to the services rendered by crime laboratories and related facilities. Presents authoritative reviews from recognized forensic criminologists and forensic scientists well-versed in their chosen areas of expertise. Considers a specific examination technique for a wide-range of evidence prevalent in the modern crime laboratory, e.g., DNA, hair, paint, soil, glass, petroleum products, explosives, alcohol in blood and breath, and questioned documents. Describes the theory, operation, and forensic utilization of such modern analytical instruments as mass spectrometry, capillary electrophoresis, high-performance liquid chromatography, and the visible microspectrophotometer. Emphasizes the symbiotic relationship between forensic science and criminal law as it examines the role and conduct of the expert witness, rules of evidence, and the legal requirements governing the admissibility of scientifically evaluated evidence.For professionals in forensic science and criminology.
