Its only short coming is the lack of cross-polarised photographs. For instance, I wanted to see an example of the difference between Mg & Fe olivine’s – given its close to 20 years since I looked down a microscope…

Be careful 3 Mar. 2014
By Wayne Bulmer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Be careful when you order this book. There is supposed to be a CD that goes with it.

When purchased via Amazon, the CD is not included because the publisher (The Mineralogical Society of Great Britain) does a special on-demand order for Amazon but minus the CD.

You can, however, request the CD for your Amazon purchase by contacting the Society at admin@minersoc.org. Alternatively the book, with CD, may be purchased directly from the Society. Check their website.

As an aside, this text is meant for a university audience or anyone interested in advanced metamorphic petrogenesis.

This final edition by the original authors, although no longer a handbook, was a pleasant surprise in terms of its colourful illustrations, up-dated data, and inclusive CD. It will be a great help for students of mineral optics and metamorphic petrogenesis. A must-have reference.

As usual DHZ is a great reference for people using the polarizing microscope and for geologists intrigued by minerals. The structure of minerals is well represented. A few more photos of minerals under the microscope would have been super. Great

This is a great book and really a necessary reference for anyone interested in mineralogy and crystallography. However, my copy did not ship with advertised CD. Otherwise, it would have received 5 stars.

Not constructed like the second edition 27 Mar. 2014
By Stephen Warta - Published on Amazon.com

The book itself is good, containing a lot of excellent information. HOWEVER, this is not a hand book!! The 2nd edition is a small handbook that can be carried around anywhere, even the field. This 3rd edition is most definitely not a handbook. It is the size of a large textbook, and the copy I got was a paper back. If you want a reference book for the lab or office, it could work. but definitely not a handy size in terms of mobility.
