About this book Volume 5A of this second edition of "Rock-Forming Minerals" focuses on oxides, hydroxides and sulphides. Since the publication of the first edition, in , there has been an enormous increase in the literature devoted to these minerals. This book will be useful to undergraduate students of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry, especially those at third or fourth year, engaged in more advanced courses or specialized projects, and also as a reference work for students for ‘Masters’ degrees by taught courses or research. Vol. 5A: Non-Silicates: Oxides, Hydroxides and Sulphides in pdf form, in that case you come on to the faithful website. We present full version of this book in doc, PDF, txt, ePub, DjVu formats. NON-SILICATES: OXIDES, HYDROXIDES AND SULPHIDES1. Few books on our shelves are pulled more often than mineralogy ref- erence texts. It was thus a great pleasure to dive into a new edition from the classic series Rock-Forming Minerals (aka Deer, Howie and Zussman).

Abstract. Minerals which are not silicates have been grouped together in this chapter for the description of their properties. However, unlike the silicates, the crystal structures and chemical variation of members of the group are not easily related to mineralogical properties and mode of by: 2. Tt is 50 years since the publication of the first edition of this volume of Rock-forming Minerals. The intervening years have seen a vast growth in the range and quantity of published work on 'non-silicate" rock-forming minerals, a growth that has justified dividing the topics of the first edition into two volumes (sulphates, carbonates, phosphates and halides have already been covered; see. What now came to land in my mail box was a veritable “brique” of pages, weighing in at an impressive kg and about twice as thick as its venerable first-edition predecessor, which included all the common rock-forming non-silicates in a thrifty by: 3. Calcite is typically found in the sedimentary rock called limestone. Calcite is also in marble, a metamorphic rock, which forms when limestone is put under strong heat and pressure.
