The Consumer's Guide to Minerals
Christopher Keane and Megan Sever
The importance of minerals in our everyday lives cannot be underestimated. The Consumer's Guide to Minerals is a different take on them. Rather than focusing on visual and physical properties, this book explores mineralsí myriad uses in scientific research, manufacturing, medicine and many commercial applications some of which may even shock you. This digital exclusive is an important reference for mineral enthusiasts, teachers, and students of applied science, geology and economics; practicing engineers and professional geoscientists in government service, environment and sustainability; and those professionals working in the minerals industry or those serving the minerals industry.
The Consumer's Guide to Minerals is a compilation of monthly articles from EARTH Magazine, edited by Megan Sever and Dr. Christopher M. Keane. The Guide is a collaborative effort between EARTH Magazine and the U.S. Geological Survey.
