Very scarce. An attempt to present to the student a brief story of the characteristics of the common minerals and rocks. The plan discusses the elements and geometrical crystallography in which only the fundamental forms of the six systems are described. Then the physical and chemical properties of minerals are discussed, followed by descriptions of about 75 of the most common mineral species. This is reinforced by the descriptive characters placed in a tabular form. A final section treats the most common rocks.
