In this course, students will study mineralogy and optical mineralogy, with a focus on describing minerals within their geologic context. The foundations of mineralogy will be covered, including: crystallography, chemical bonding, controls on mineral structure, mineral stability, and crystal growth. Students will learn physical and chemical analytical methods to examine mineral composition and structure. Hand-sample identification will be emphasized in the laboratory component. In the field, students will learn to identify rock-forming minerals within the context of historical geological events.
