It covers all covers all rock types—igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic—with equal emphasis and authority, providing the student with an excellent overview of the subject. Each photograph, specially produced for the book, has been chosen to instruct the beginner and offer valuable resource material to the teacher and lecturer of geology. As well as being a useful teaching and learning tool, the atlas is a concise reference and review of rock and mineral identification.
