As one has come to expect of a Dorling Kindersley publication, it's peppered with beautiful, glossy pictures - the rock, mineral, gem and fossil photographs are of such good quality you feel you could lift them off the page - and is laid out for easy reference. (Geographical)

Purchased for a bright 7 year old.He could cope as he was held by the dramatic photographs and very visual nature of each page.The text is too technical for a child but accessible if read with an adult.Great for a general introduction on how rocks are formed, the types and wonderful vivid close ups of minerals and crystals.
A pity there is no colour index to help in identification.If you know your purple crystal is amethyst its easy to find more detail, if you want a book as a guide to identifying rock and mineral easily this is not for you.
I'm very pleased with the book. Excellent, good for me to show and explain about the rocks and minerals to my young grandchildren (aged 8 & 6) who are showing an interest in the subject.
Another excellent book from DK!
If the rock/mineral is not in this book then it does not exist. Really informative in a nice quality type paper.
