Virtual Atlas of Opaque and Ore Minerals in Their Associations


This atlas provides over 400 full colour photomicrographs of the major ore-forming mineral associations and opaque minerals in non-mineralized rocks. It describes typical examples of each mineral from many classical localities throughout the world. For each association there is a listing of the major (and important minor) primary ore minerals, alteration products and gangue, typical textures, a brief discussion of the geology of the association and a list of references. Minerals can be searched by association, country, location, mineral name, mineralogy, texture, optical property, individual plate descriptions, or via an image gallery. Educational levels: High school, Undergraduate lower division, Undergraduate upper division
