This book breaks new ground in several ways. The internal structures of quartz crystals are covered as well as its external forms. It explains the latest concepts so that they may be understood by novices and be of interest to professional mineralogists. It describes many forms of quartz crystals that have not been covered in previous books. The CD, which is included, clearly illustrates the internal atomic arrangements and growth mechanisms in a manner that the two-dimensional pages of a book cannot. The specimens used in the book were not selected merely for their beauty, but for their unique qualities. This internationally acclaimed book is enjoyable, entertaining and educational.
