About the Course

The high-tech society we live in is based on minerals and mineral products such as metals, ceramics and construction materials. Crystallography, silicate and non-silicate minerals are covered in lectures. Practical identification of mineral specimens and use of the polarising microscope is also covered. Assignments require literature study. This course provides the basic knowledge of mineralogy needed by all professional geoscientists and also forms the basis for advanced studies in mineralogy, petrology, ore geology and Precambrian Geology.
