Counter The new edition of this landmark volume takes into account the vast amount of new spectral data on minerals, and describes a variety of applications of crystal field theory to the earth and planetary sciences. A unique perspective of the second edition is that it highlights the properties of minerals that make them compounds of interest to solid state chemists and physicists.
