  • Energy Dispersive Spectrometry of Common Rock Forming Mineralsby Kenneth P. Severin

    Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 199.00

    "This book came about because of my poor memory: it is amazing how quickly and easily an experienced electron microscopist/mineralogist can identify minerals with an Energy Dispersive Spectrometer (EDS). It is also amazing how long it takes someone who is not good at mineralogy to search through a mineralogy text, trying to match the peaks on their... more...

  • Understanding Mineral Depositsby Kula Misra

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 399.00

    Mineral deposits have supplied useful or valuable material for human consumption long before they became objects of scientific curiosity or commercial exploitation. In fact, the earliest human interest in rocks was probably because of the easily accessible, useful (e. g. , red pigment in the form of earthy hematite) or valuable (e. g. , native gold... more...
