Formed 4.5 billion years ago, and still moving and growing today, the crust of the Earth is made of a huge variety of rocks and minerals. This book explores andexplains the world of rocks and minerals, beginning with a look at the structure of the Earth and the ways in which minerals are formed. Neil Grant then goes on to explain topics such as identifying minerals, volcanoes and lava, fossils, gems, building a rock collection, and the formation of coaland oil beneath the Earth's surface. With beautiful illustrations on every page, Rocks and Minerals is an educational and colorful guide to planet Earth.
