Mars Pathfinder Science Results The Alpha Proton X-Ray Spectrometer on the rover measured the compositions of nine rocks. The silicon content of some of the rocks is much higher than that of the martian meteorites, our only other samples of Mars. The martian meteorites are all mafic and ultramafic igneous rocks, volcanic and intrusive rocks that are relatively low in silicon and high in iron and magnesium. Such rocks would be expected to form by partial melting of the upper mantle of Mars. The melt rises up though the crust and solidifies at or near the surface. The mafic volcanic martian meteorites, referred to as basalts, are the most common rock on Earth and have also been found on the Moon. Based on the composition of the martian meteorites and the presence of plains and mountains that look like features produced by basaltic volcanism on Earth, geologists expected to find primarily basalts on Mars.

I have thus scheduled both a lecture and lab for November 2 and have made a new version of the Syllabus to reflect the changes. You can get the new version by clicking on the Course Syllabus link above (the link to the PDF version is at the bottom of that link). October 2, 2002 - President Cowen just announced that classes will be canceled on Thursday, October 3. I have not yet made up a new syllabus to account for the cancellation. However, we cannot keep putting off the crystallography lab exam. The crystallography lab exam will take place on Tuesday, October 8 during the regularly scheduled lab period.

Nesse, Oxford Press, 2000 Course prerequisites: Successful completion of a first semester college chemistry course, e.g. CHEM 103A, or it's equivalent. Objectives: The primary objective of this course is to develop a broad overview of the minerals that form the Earth - their nature, origin and evolution. We will explore the fundamental principles of crystallography and crystal-chemistry. These principles govern and describe the architecture of minerals at the atomic level and are responsible for their properties and stabilities. We will study the nature of the dominant phases that make up the bulk of the earth. We will discuss methods to identify minerals in hand specimens and using X-ray diffraction, as well as the use of the electron microprobe for the determination of mineral compositions. Grading Policy: Your final grade is based on the following distribution:
  • Lecture: two midterm exams: 20%; final exam: 20%.

    If you're a real glutton for punishment, read our ninepart illustrated seriesof crystallography articles! next page is mineralogy meets Metaphysics.
    Mineralogy of Quartz Crystal Index to Quartz


    Photos from readers
    Chapter 1 Page 10
    E NTIRE BOOKS have been written on quartz and its many varieties. Here we'll only discuss the properties of crystalline quartz and end with a list of what we know about Arkansas quartz vein formation in the Ouachita Mountains.
    Although quartz has a unique structure, so do many other minerals. That in combination with the chemistry is what makes a mineral a mineral.
    We will begin with some basics: To meet the definition of a mineral, quartz must be composed of an orderly arrangement of certain elements, so that we may describe its internal structure and present its chemistry by a representative formula: SiO
    Here is a hand-sized piece of metallic silicon. This metal combined with oxygen makes quartz crystals: silicon dioxide. Isn't chemistry amazing? Any mineralogist would agree with me when I say that quartz is the most diverse species in terms of varieties, shapes and forms for a single mineral species. The feldspars or the pyroxenes and amphiboles include a whole host of minerals with similar structural characteristics, but variable chemistry. Quartz certainly has the most COLLECTABLE varieties of any single species. Silica
    Alpha and beta quartz

    Now most of these numbers won't mean anything to you unless you try to figure how the world was made. But some people do, so here's a little more. Crystalline quartz may be described as alpha-quartz (low quartz) or beta-quartz (high quartz). Alpha-quartz forms at temperatures lower than 573

    Photograph of amethyst crystal Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History
    Welcome to Geology 311, the course in Mineralogy and Crystallography taught at Iowa State University. In this course, we will explore many interesting aspects of that part of nature included in the group we refer to as Minerals. Over the course of this semester, you will be exposed to concepts of symmetry and atomic positions in crystalline matter, in chemistry of natural inorganic materials and what forces cause different elements to prefer one mineral structure over that of another. If you are reading this, you already know that computers will play a role in this course. There will be exercises for you to do using the computer as well as "locations" for you to visit that have additional information about minerals. The use of the computer in this way for this course is relatively new, and will be evolving as the semester proceeds. Comments and suggestions from you during the course are encouraged. Your instructor for this course is Dr. Kenneth E. Windom

    14. Descriptive mineralogy
    Order of presentation
    Silicates are given first; they are, with oxides, the most important minerals found locally. The silicate mineral groups are generally presented in the traditional manner, in order of increasing silicate polymerization; nesosilicates precede sorosilicates and so on. The general framework of the Dana system is employed, but not a slavish devotion to its details. In general, minerals belonging to recognized structural groups are presented as group units. Thus, among the nesosilicates, the olivines, the humites, the manganese-humites, and the garnets are presented in groups, and the other nesosilicates are given in alphabetical order; among inosilicates, the pyroxenes, pyroxenoids, and amphiboles are presented in groups, and so on. The minerals in each section are given in alphabetical order and, excepting the olivine-related minerals, those within groups are separately alphabetized; numerous distinctions are permitted by this flexible approach.
    Method of description
    This study is intended as an adjunct to that of Palache (1935), and much data given by him, especially morphological data, is not repeated. Two distinct formats for descriptions are used in this study. The description of species for which little data or few specimens exist, or of species which may be of trivial significance locally, is given in an abbreviated format. For all others, the preponderance, a more structured format is employed, as described below.
