This second CD deals with the morphology and structure of solids occurring naturally, the world of minerals and stones, divided into four sections: Mineralogy of elements and bonds, mineralogy of silicates, structure of stones and characterization of gems and precious stones. The illustrations and images were selected taking care that only those depicting objects of typical and common occurrence were included. The degree of enlargement was also kept to the minimum, so that the depicted objects appear as close to their natural size as possible; enlargements beyond natural size contain a note to that effect. The accompanying texts are brief and to the point, limiting themselves to the fundamental features of the subjects under discussion. A glossary is also included with the purpose of facilitating the understanding of the extensive terminology and synonyms pertaining to this field of study.
