Introduction To Minerals Poster 24x36
by Feenixx Publishing.
Laminated Poster
This exciting new title joins our incredibly popular Introduction to Fossils and Introduction to Rocks. All use the same graphic design, resulting in a matched set. Together they provide a comprehensive overview of the building blocks of earth science.
   The poster defines a mineral and then explores the relationship of minerals to atoms and molecules. The all-important crystal structure is introduced, followed by informative text and illustrations that introduce all six crystal structure classes. This is followed by an outstanding presentation of the actual mineral classes - natural elements, suflides, sulfates, carbonates, etc.
   Collectors and students naturally want to identify their specimens. However, specimens of the same mineral can vary greatly, which can make that a difficult task. Identification has traditionally been based on the observation of physical properties: hardness, habit, luster, cleavage, specific gravity, color, fluorescence, streak, etc. The bulk of Introduction to Minerals presents those properties through informative captions, illustrations and carefully selected photographs. The emphasis is on how to use the physical properties for identification.
    There are approximately 100 common minerals. Over 60 of them are shown on this poster, making it even more helpful for identification.
All posters are printed on very heavy, high-quality paper.  It is a very hard paper that preserves tiny details.  Posters are specially coated to provide a satin finish that reduces glare and enhances their presentation.  These are the same high standards used to produce expensive art prints.
 This poster is laminated and, therefore, requires no frame.  All posters measure 24" x 36".  This standard size fits inexpensive, off the shelf frames if you wish to frame this poster.
