An Instant Guide to Rocks and Minerals is an ideal compact identification guide to the rocks, minerals, and crystals found on the shore, in the desert, in national parks, on old mine tips, in yards, and in the stone and stone-faced buildings of North America.
This user-friendly guide assumes no previous knowledge: an easy-to-follow system of color-coded bands and symbols designating type of rock and hardness of mineral leads quickly to the correct section of the book. Detailed, full-color illustrations and a concise but informative text that includes details of principal U.S. locations allow you to identify accurately the most familiar rocks and minerals of North America.
