Laboratory Exercises

The laboratory consists of two parts. Every week there is an exercise related to the topic in the lecture. There is also a group of minerals that you need to learn. That is, you have to be able to recognize the mineral, know its distinguishing properties, know its formula, and know about its symmetry and structure. These are all well documented in Deer, Howie, and Zussman, An Introduction to the Rock-Forming Minerals (The Mineralogical Society), 2013.
