Textures of the ore minerals and their significance.   The manuscript further touches on oxide ore minerals and gangue minerals and non-opaque oxide ore minerals, including quartz, calcite, dolomite, siderite, cerussite, smithsonite, jarosite, tenorite, zincite, and cuprite. The text is a dependable reference for readers interested in ore minerals and their : Paul Ramdohr. Textures Of The Ore Minerals And Their Significance Edwards A. B | Marlowes Books Textures Of The Ore Minerals And Their Significance Edwards A. B Book is in general good condition. There is some light reading wear present, but still a presentable copy. The only exception is a small inscription to the inside page. The microscopic study of ores has been extensive during the past forty years, but a satisfactory classification and definition of textural terms has not been by:

Textures paragenesis and zoning of ores and their significance. Textures. Ore microscopy involves not only the identification of individual mineral grains but also the interpretation of ore mineral textures, that is, the relationship between grains.   Tis text has resulted from some forty years of experience during which the author has puzzled over the meaning of ore textures. Te learning process has been slow and is still incomplete. Te bemusement began directly upon leaving the academic confnes, which in retrospect lef one keen young geologist very ill-equipped to interpret the mineralising process . lished sources. To all workers in ore-mineral microscopy the book may be recommended as a very good summation of the textures of the opaque minerals and interpretations of their genetic significance. E. Wu.

The minerals are identified mainly by their physical properties (color, luster, crystal form, hardness, etc.) by the naked eye or with a hand-lens. Further identification can be made by the help of optical properties in the reflected light (ore minerals) or transmitted light microscope of polished and thin sections, respectively.

The Ore Minerals and Their Intergrowths focuses on the properties, characteristics, and reactions of ore minerals. The book first offers information on genetic systematics of ore deposits and ore textures. Discussions focus on meteorites, magmatic, sedimentary, and metamorphic sequences, fabric properties considered from a purely geometric. Understanding ore textures is fundamental to unraveling the genesis of an ore deposit, which in turn allows exploration and mining geologists to build their conceptual models of the deposits they encounter and leads to more successful exploration and exploitation/5(9). Much new data and many new ideas have emerged in the area of ore geology and industrial minerals since publication of the second edition of this text in The overriding philosophy behind this new edition is the inclusion and integration of this new material within the established framework of the by: ore-mineral phases under the reflected-light microscope qualitatively with the additional use of etching techniques. These systematic studies resulted in the publication of the first edition of Die Erzmineralien und ihre Verwachsungen [The Ore Minerals and their Intergrowths] in 2.
