Book is full of interesting material but not as visually appealing as minerals can be. Mineralogy is a fascinating subject.

I agree with the other reviewers that this is an excellent bridge book for someone learning about mineralogy who has no intention of becoming a professional. Just be aware that Mineralogy by John Sinkankas and Mineralogy for Amateurs is the same book.

Very indepth book. Takes a while to master this tome. But it is expensive. But if you want to collect minerals it is the best out there.

The book arrived in a timely manner and was as expected.

For a second hand (used) book this is in very good condition, as described by the seller, Beedees Books. The book is "out of print" so I am very happy to have it in my possession.
The process of buying this book was extremely easy and I recommend Amazon and Beedees Books.

Every book that I pick up on rockhounding and mineralogy has references to works by Mr. John Sinkankas, a retired Navy Captain who had a passion for mineralogy and for passing his passion on to others.

I was very fortunate to find a copy of this book for sale on Amazon, as the book is out of print. The book is a treasure trove of information on all aspects of mineralogy, including how crystals are formed, crystal systems, physical and optical properties of minerals, and even how to make your own tools for mineral identification.

The book is highly readable, and Mr. Sinkankas has a way of presenting technical information that is accurate and usable to the amateur as well as the seasoned mineralogist. I consider this one of the best books that I have in my library, and I would highly recommend this one and anything written by Mr. Sinkankas.
I have been a gemologist for 17 years and wanted to expand what I already knew. This is a fantastic book that is easy to read and explains things so well. I am loving it!
