Mineralogy and Optical Mineralogy
Mineralogical Society of America , Founded December 30, Mineralogy and Optical Mineralogy is a college-level textbook designed for courses in rocks and minerals, mineralogy, and optical mineralogy. It covers crystallography, crystal chemistry, systematic mineralogy, and optical mineralogy. The textbook is organized to facilitate spiral learning, with introductory through advanced chapters on each of these four topics. A chapter on hand sample identification is also included. The chapters differ in several ways from a traditional mineralogy textbook: 1 it promotes learning in a digital environment; 2 the authors use modern pedagogy; 3 it is written so that the more advanced chapters build on information learned in earlier chapters; 4 each chapter in the digital series is available separately allowing the instructor to pick and choose only those chapters needed for their specific course.
A mineral is, broadly speaking, a solid chemical compound that occurs naturally in pure form. These rocks may consist of one type of mineral, or may be an aggregate of two or more different types of minerals, spacially segregated into distinct phases. Compounds that occur only in living beings are usually excluded, but some minerals are often biogenic such as calcite or are organic compounds in the sense of chemistry such as mellite.

Mineralogy is the scientific study of minerals. The minerals of mineralogy are most traditionally defined in the past decade or two as naturally occurring inorganic substances, produced by geochemical processes, with an ordered, repeating atomic arrangement a crystalline substance whose composition can be described by a chemical formula resulting in a definite, but not necessarily fixed, composition.
