This unique interactive product allows you to study minerals at your own pace from your present level of understanding. Learn what minerals are, how crystals form and explore their symmetry, chemical compositions, and properties through 3-D graphics and animated sequences.

Study gems and ore, then test your skill at mineral exploration. Search the database for information about a particular mineral, or find internet sites on the latest information about mineral resources, mineral collecting, mineral research, museums, and careers in mineralogy.

The learning process is enhanced by interactive activities, abundant photographs, videoclips, glossary, and database on mineral properties. The illustrated database of over 150 minerals includes photographs, microscopic thin sections, and many mineral shapes and molecular structures you can rotate 360°.

Reviews:

Geotimes Magazine:

"The CD is a comprehensive learning tool for anyone interested in minerals - from the casual collector to the advanced mineralogy student. Unlike many of the CDs released by Tasa Graphics in the past, this CD provides exercises and information aimed at the more advanced student... To learn about minerals, you can work your way through simulated microscopic and laboratory analyses... The interactive microscope slides are particularly useful and graphically stunning."
