Definitive guide to rocks and minerals

Rocks and Minerals (Explore Your World Handbook)
(Discovery Channel)

Serious rockhounds will appreciate this handy, portable book. Not only does it explain rock and crystal formation, but it provides practical advice about collecting and identifying them. The book contains extensive identification guides with information about colour, hardness, uses, origin and occurrence (location of minerals).

The book is written for adult readers, but children can still enjoy the pictures, charts, and diagrams.
