Color photographs and movies illustrate and demonstrate mineral identification. What better way to understand "metallic luster" or "pleochroism" than to see color photographs of minerals that exhibit these characteristics? This "Made for iBooks" chapter uses the power of digital media to visualize mineral identification and make it easy to understand.
"…who cares about mineral identification? Is this some obscure hobby practiced by enthusiastic retirees? Why is this so important? It all comes down to this: hand sample mineral identification is the first tool used by geologists in any kind of field setting; if you can’t identify minerals, you'll never understand the rocks they constitute."

Topics covered in Chapter 2 include:
• Mineral Nomenclature
• Mineral Properties
• Color and streak
• Luster
• Hardness
• Fracture and tenacity
• Crystal form and system
• Crystal shape and habit
• Cleavage and parting
• Twinning
• Specific gravity (density)
• Other properties, such as taste, radioactivity, and magnetism.

The Mineralogy and Optical Mineralogy Series is specifically designed to take full advantage of digital media technology to empower students and teachers of mineralogy. Using color photographs, illustrations, movies, 3D models that can be rotated, interactive diagrams, and review questions, this series makes a challenging subject approachable. Also, each chapter in the series is available separately allowing the reader to pick and choose only those chapters they need for their specific course.
