Klein and Hurlbut's Manual of Mineralogy, now it its 21st edition, remains the definitive textbook on the subject. Now this widely acknowledged classic provides the foundation for an interactive, multimedia tutorial CD-ROM! The CD features color photographs of over 125 minerals; 3-D Models and Animations that permit users to view crystal symmetries, internal order, and molecular structure; and simulations, to illustrate basic principles of crystallography, crystal chemistry, and the systematic mineralogy of common rock-forming minerals. Chemical substitutions permit users to evaluate solid solution within crystal structure formulas, and hyperlinks link textual terms with graphic representation.

An interactive multimedia tutorial the CD-ROM is divided into modules which correlate to various chapters based on the 21st edition of the classic Manual of Mineralogy. Formatted for Macintosh and PCs, this graphically-based software covers all 32 crystal classes and important minerals from 30 major rock-forming mineral groups. 3D models and animations permit users to view crystal symmetries, internal orders and molecular structures and can be manually rotated around multidimensional axes. Formula substitutions allow users to perform atomic substitutions within crystal structure formulas and view graphics of resulting minerals. Hyperlinks between textual terms and graphics/video clips provide rapid connections between diverse media and content.
