Crystals and Crystal Growing by Alan Holden & Phylis Singer


From the back cover: “This exploration into the beautiful world of crystals is the first book for the amateur scientist to explain fully the theory and practice of the modern crystallographer’s remarkable art. Not only does the reader acquire a deep feeling for the eternal conflict between order and disorder in nature, but they learn the simple methods whereby they can grow and experiment with a dozen basic crystal types. Today the comprehension of the nature and behavior of crystals is essential to most branches of science, particularly mineralogy, chemistry, solid-state physics, metallurgy, and electronics.”
