Introduction to Minerals (Laminated)
"Introduction to Minerals" includes the definition of a mineral, pictures of crystal systems, photo samples of the different mineral classes, hardness, luster, habit, cleavage, color, streak, and much more. The 70+ photos of the specific specimens are clear and beautiful and offer a good look at some minerals most of us will never get to see. Information is offered for further explanation of what divides minerals into the different groups, physical characteristics (habits) of minerals and their mass, and an unusual quality called 'twinning.'
This new poster series is subtitled “content-intensive info poster.” Each 24” x 36” poster provides an overview presented through beautifully photographed images and text. The publisher believes these will appeal to the same folks who like such magazines as Smithsonian, National Geographic, and Scientific American. When I first unrolled the posters, I reacted with a big, “WOW! I need these posters for my daughter.” If you have a rock collector and a nice big wall, these would not only be useful but fun. Use them for matching, identifying and basic information.
