From the Back Cover:

This highly revised 22 nd edition even has a new name Manual of Mineral Science. It covers chemistry and crystal chemistry earlier than in previous editions to make the text more accessible to a broader range of students. The first seven chapters are essentially independent, allowing for great flexibility in an instructor's preferred subject sequence.

Each chapter has new introductory statements that explain what follows. New figures have been added in many places and thirteen new "interest boxes" Relate the subject of mineralogy to matters that are of more general and/or geologic interest. Eight new color plates with photographs of 72 of the most common minerals are new as well.

An expanded and More Usable CD. A revised version (2.1) of the CD-ROM Mineralogy Tutorials is enclosed with this text, designed for both student and instructor use. It Includes many animations that deal with three-dimensional concepts (in crystal chemistry and crystallography) and which are difficult to visualize from a book illustration, as well as brief text pages for 104 of the most common minerals, with links to crystal structure illustrations, compositional and assemblage diagrams, stability and phase diagrams, solid solution mechanism, and so on. It has an "Autorun" feature for the PC platform; an efficient print function was added, and all animations were made compatible with Quick Time version 4.0. Furthermore, audio explanations by the author were added to about 50 screens to aid the user's understanding of the presentations and/or animations. The illustrations and animations are consistently large so that the images are extremely useful as an accompaniment to lectures, through a computer overhead projection system.

Laboratory Manual. Also available from John Wiley & Sons, Inc. for use in the mineralogy laboratory is: Klein, C., 1994  Minerals and Rocks: Exercises in Crystallography, Mineralogy, and Hand Specimen Petrology, revised edition, 405 PP.
