Natural Mineral Forms by V.I. Stepanov and A.A.Godovikov

64 pages, full color, 141 photos. Ocean Pictures Ltd., 2003

price: $35

The book involves systematization and description of various mineral forms known in the nature. This is the first published well-illustrated course that tracks the evolution of the crystal perfectness over the wide range of mineralization conditions. It proceeds from almost ideal crystals to highly defective ones, which can be rightly identified as both individual forms and aggregates. Regularly and irregularly formed aggregates of minerals are also considered.
