  • This has lots of info that will come in handy for those leading a science co-op. My 8 year old daughter who loves to keep a science journal at home, will love this as well (after I'm done using it).
    An Excellent Guide for Students

  • I am a science teacher and have used this book in the classroom. It is an excellent guide for beginners. Minerals are classified in 4 categories: Metallic, Nonmetallic, Gem, Rock Forming. This is more user friendly than the chemical classifications used by geologists. The economic uses of each mineral are also mentioned. There is a section describing the various tests used to identify minerals (some of the professional tests shown here are not found in any other guide). The chapters on rocks are not as extensive as I would like. But it provides a solid intro. Economic minerals including soil, fossil fuels, clay, and gravel make this a well rounded book.
