Summary

Morphology of crystalline substances, crystal symmetry, internal structures of crystalline substances and interrelations. Chemical crystallography, geometrical and chemical factors of the origin of structures, isomorphism and polymorphism. Basic macrodiagnostic physical properties of minerals, optical properties and their identification by using microscopy. Systematic mineralogy, classification principles, systematic overview of basic representatives of elements, sulphides, halides, oxides and hydroxides, nitrates, carbonates, sulphates, phosphates and silicates. Main processes leading to the origin of minerals and rocks under various genetic conditions, genetic classification of rocks (magmatic, sedimentary, metamorphic). Magmatic rocks, principles of classification based on mineralogical and chemical composition. Sedimentary rocks, their origin (weathering, transport, sedimentation, diagenesis), classification of clastic and cementing sediments. Genesis of metamorphic rocks, physical and chemical factors of metamorphosis, overview of the main types of metamorphic rocks.
