An introduction to crystal optics

£15.99

Product description

***Sold as used: very good due to age of book. In generally great condition for age, with slight crease to spine***

Crystal optics is one of the most widely used practical techniques employed in the study of the physical properties of crystaline matter. Whilst there are many more sophisticated methods available to investigate the constituent minerals of the different rocks types found in nature, all students need a thorough grounding in the optical properties of transparent crystaline substances and the methods used to determine them.

Since its first publication in 1967, Dr Peter Gay's 'Introduction to Crystal Optics' has been recognised as the most comprehensive and authoritative textbook for students on this important subject. Out of prints for some time, it is now re-issued in paperback to meet the continued demand for the book from students of mineralogy, physics, optics, crystallography, chemistry and materials science.

The original text is reprinted complete, with a few corrections where necessary, and thus it retains the highly praised approach of blending clear and theoretical explanations with a thorough grounding in practical microscope technique. This is reinforced with a practical and theoretical exercises at the end of nearly every chapter. A completely up-dated bibliography has been added to enhance the book's value and a full-colour Michel-Lévy chart, an essential identification guide, is bound into the book for easy reference.

A whole new generation of students of crystalline substances will find Peter Gay's book continues to provide the best possible introduction to the subject. It will be of particular importance to student mineralogists as a companion text to Deer, Howie and Zussman, 'Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals' and MacKenzie and Guilford, 'Atlas of Rock-Forming Minerals in Thin Section', both of which are published by Longman.

**An extremely rare and out of print book, lovingly sourced from donations and listed online by our shop volunteers**
