Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The objective is comprehension of mineral´s crystal structure, its characteristics, clasification systems, genesis of minerals and its research methods. Students should learn: Collect basic principles of mineral characteristics and classification. Describe, clarify and interpret natural processes of mineral cycle. Theoretically know basic analytical methods for minerals and crystals research. Ilustrate knowledge in examples of describing and utilization of minerals.

Summary

Crystalline substances - the point of interest. Their morphology, inner structure, inter-regularities. Crystal symmetry, crystal systems. Chemical crystallography, geometrical and chemical factors. Chemical bonds and their relation to physical properties. The explanation of the terms “isomorphism” and “polymorphism”. Macrodiagnostic physical properties of mineral phases. Optical properties and their identification by using the polarizing microscope. Systematic mineralogy, classification principles. A systematic overview of basic (best-known) mineral phases of elements of sulphides, halogenides, oxides and hydroxides, nitrates, carbonates, sulphates, phosphates and silicates. Genetic mineralogy, main paragenetic regularities, succession.
