"Highlights in Mineralogical Crystallography" presents a collection of review articles with the common topic: structural properties of minerals and synthetic analogues. It is a valuable resource for mineralogists, materials scientists, crystallographers, and earth scientists. This book includes:

  • An introduction to the RRUFF database for structural, spectroscopic, and chemical mineral identification.
  • A systematic evaluation of structural complexity of minerals.
  • ab initio computer modelling of mineral surfaces.
  • Natural quasicrystals of meteoritic origin.
  • The potential role of terrestrial ringwoodite on the water content of the Earth's mantle.
  • Structural characterization of nanocrystalline bio-related minerals by electron-diffraction tomography.
  • The uniqueness of mayenite-type compounds as minerals and high-tech ceramics.
