Book Description :

The first edition of this book has been out of print for seven years. The ques tion as to whether a new edition should be produced was answered affirmatively on many counts. I think that the considerations which led me to write this book in 1949 are still valid (see Preface to the First Edition). Moreover, a description of those areas of interest which together comprise the field of Mineralogy seems to be more necessary than ever, because of the rapid advances which have been made. Due to the rapid extension of our knowledge, I did not dare again to treat the whole field by myself. Accordingly, Professor ZEMANN kindly agreed to revise the first part of the book dealing with Crystallography. He made many important corrections. In Part II the basic question arose as to whether the physical-chemical approach to rock forming processes, becoming more and more important, required inclusive treatment of the fundamentals of physical chemistry in the book. I see certain dangers in trying to produce a petrology text which is physical chemically self-sufficient. Thus, I retain the same opinion which prevailed when I wrote the previous edition; namely that the necessary basic knowledge should be acquired in lectures and laboratory classes in physics, chemistry, and physical chemistry, and with the help of standard literature dealing with these subjects. This back ground is, therefore, presumed and fundamentals are only referred to occasionally.

Book Description :

Originally published in 1916. INTRODUCTION - To Optical Mineralogy and Petrography The Practical Methods of Identifying Minerals in Thin Section With the Microscope and The Principles Involved in The Classification of Rocks - PREFACE: IN THE preparation of this volume the writer has attempted to gather together and systematize in a manner accessible for ready reference those facts which are essential to a field geologist or to a mining engineer in an understanding of the fundamental principles involved in the classification and identification of rocks. In the field, a preliminary classification is usually made by macroscopic means. However, it is often necessary to make a more careful classification by a microscopic examination of a thin section of the minerals comprising the rock mass. To do this successfully requires a knowledge of the application of light to crystalline substances. This volume differs from most of the reference and text books relating to this subject in that it incorporates in one volume the elements of optical mineralogy and the elements of petrography. In Part One, eight general operations for the determination of unknown minerals in thin section are described, prefaced by a short summary of the principles of optics which apply to the transmission of polarized light through minerals. Descriptions of fiftyeight of the most common of the rock-making minerals are given, special attention being given to the criteria for the determination of these minerals in thin section. Their form, cleavage, twinning, color, refringence, bi refringence, extinction angles, pleochroism, absorption, optical character, inclusions, alterations, occurrences, uses, and differentiation from similar minerals, are all discussed whenever applicable. An elementary knowledge of crystallography and descriptive mineralogy is assumed. In Part Two, the principles of petrography are discussed briefly. Attention is given to the classification and description of the more important igneous rock types. Following Iddings, Winchell, and other American petrographers, the symbols X, Y, and Z, are here employed in referring to the axes of ether elasticity, instead of the German a, b, and c, used in many text and reference books. This is done to avoid confusion, especially in conversation or discussion, with the crystallographic axes. 2 The writer is indebted to Professor Frank R. Van Horn for suggestions. Among the reference and text books most frequently consulted the writer wishes to acknowledge Winchells Elements of Optical Mineralogy, Johannsens Manual of Petrographic Methods, Luquers Minerals in Rock Sections, Rogerss Study of Minerals, Findlays Igneous Rocks, Kemps Handbook of Rocks, Ries and Watsons Engineering Geology, and Farrells Practical Field Geology.

Book Description :

An understanding of rocks and the minerals that comprise them lies at the core of every geologist’s education. As more curricula combine mineralogy and petrology into a single course, Raymond and Johnson have responded with a concise introduction to the study of Earth materials. The authors have written at a level that won’t intimidate students encountering fundamental concepts for the first time, yet with enough rigor that they’ll be well prepared for future study. A broad approach to the subject that incorporates fluids and soils will appeal to instructors who teach engineering and environmental science students as well as future geoscientists. Abundant illustrations reinforce all of the ideas in the text. Many images are presented in color, with additional color images available at waveland.com/Raymond-Johnson. Problems appear throughout the book, encouraging a deeper understanding for students. Helpful appendices make it easy for instructors to assign further exercises in rock and mineral identification as well as optical mineralogy and petrography.

Book Description :

N this book the task of summarising modern petrology I from the genetic standpoint has been attempted. The scale of the work is small as compared with the magni tude of its subject, but it is nevertheless believed that the field has been reasonably covered. In conformity with the genetic viewpoint petrology, as contrasted with petrography, has been emphasised throughout; and purely descriptive mineralogical and petrographical detail has been omitted. Every petrologist who reads this book will recognise the author's indebtedness to Dr. A. Harker and Dr. A. Holmes, among British workers; to Prof. R. A. Daly, Dr. H. S. Washington, and Dr. N. L. Bowen, among American petrologists; and to Prof. J. H. L. Vogt, Prof. V. M. Goldschmidt, Prof. A. Lacroix, and Prof. P. Niggli. among European investigators. The emphasis laid on modern views, and the relative poverty of references to the works of the older generation of petrologists, does not imply any disrespect of the latter. It is due to recognition of the desirability of affording the petrological student a newer and wider range of reading references than is usually supplied in this class of work; for refer ences tend to become stereotyped as well as text and illustrations. Furthermore it is believed that all that is good and living in the older work has been incorporated, consciously or unconsciously, in the newer.
