Description: This book covers the entire spectrum of mineralogy and consolidates its applications in various fields. It starts (Part I) with the very basic concept of mineralogy describing in detail the implications of various aspects of mineral chemistry, crystallographic structures and their effects producing different mineral properties. Part II of the book describes different aspects of mineralogy used to extend the studies of Geothermobarometry, mineral thermodynamics and phase diagrams, mineral exploration and analysis, some aspects of marine minerals etc. The book finally (Part III) handles the applications in industrial, medicinal and environmental mineralogy along with precious and semiprecious stone studies. The various analytical techniques, their significance in handling specific type of mineralogical problems are also well accounted to complete the document.
