Page 11 - ... obvious terms having been already used. The classical distinction of albus meaning a dead white, and candidus a shining white, has little prominence in Fries
Page 31 - The price-list is an excellent check list, containing the names of all the species, and the more common varieties, arranged alphabetically and preceded by the species number. The species number indicates the place of any mineral in the table of species ; after it will be found the species name, composition, streak or lustre, cleavage or fracture, hardness, specific gravity, fusibility and crystallization. I have very many species not on the price-list, and some that I had in 1876 are no longer in...

Page 11 - Of the brown-greys, murmus, mouse-colour, is the palest (cf. Paxillus extenuatus, Fries, p. 402). Myochrous should have the same signification, but is used by Fries for a dusky umber. Argillaceus is a light brownish ash-colour. Fuscus, dusky, is rather a vague term, but it is almost too brown to be classed under the greys at all ; fuscescens means becoming dusky.
Page 11 - Eburneus, ivory-white, ermineus, ermine-white, niveus, snow-white and virgineus, virgin or pure white, have no more distinction than the English terms by which they are naturally translated. Between the extremes of white and black there can be great varieties of GREYS, and the pure greys run into the blues and browns, so that they are best studied in three groups. Of the pure greys, canus and incanus are the nearest to white; just as we call white hair or a white horse 'grey'.
Page 11 - Cinereus is the grey of wood-ashes, cinerascens is becoming such a grey; griseus seems to be a little darker, and lixivius is darker still and inclining to brown. Cretaceo-pallidus is a pale chalky grey. Nigrescens and nigricans do not mean so much dark grey as a grey that turns black with age. Of greys that incline to blue, caesius is the palest; it was the classical term for the blue-grey of the eye. Glaucus is a grey that inclines to green, and glaucescens denotes a paler shade of the same colour....
Page 12 - Ravidus is a dark grey. Fumosus, fuligineus, and fuliginosus are best translated smoky, and not, as the latter might be, sooty black. Pure blacks fortunately do not admit of much variation, although since an absolute black is rarely seen, several terms occur. Ater is strictly a lustreless black, and niger is a glistening black ; piceo-ater, black as pitch, and furvus, swarthy, come into the former category...
