Minerals of the World is a guide to more than 500 minerals from around the world. The text - covering crystallography, properties, names and varieties, structure, diagnostic features, and occurrence - and the discussion of less common minerals not found in other guides make this an invaluable resource. With over 600 color photographs and crystallographic diagrams, this book is unequalled. It is set to become the field guide of choice for mineral collectors and students of mineralogy.

Editorial Reviews

Rock & Gem - Bob Jones
The advantage of this reference lies in the excellent treatment of crystal systems and internal structure of minerals. It's up to date, so it could replace the older, similar references on your shelf.
American Mineralogist - Anthony Kampf
This excellent up-to-date publication rates as one of the best mineral guidebooks around. The text is accurate and authoritative, the illustrations are well chosen and of high quality and the production quality is superb. While it is probably most appropriate for the intermediate to advanced collector, this book will delight the beginner and prove a good reference for students and, indeed, anyone interested in hand-specimen mineralogy.
The Mineralogical Record - Anthony R. Kampf
This is one of the best mineral guidebooks that I have seen. The written content is accurate and authoritative. The illustrations are well-chosen and of excellent quality. The overall production quality is superb. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in minerals.
