Icelandic Rocks and Minerals.

This useful, and fully illustrated in photographs, handbook, which fits easily into a rucksack, will help identify the interesting and often very beautiful minerals and rocks that are typical of Icelandic geology. 

Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, the book contains detailed descriptions of the identifying features of each mineral, as well as an introduction to Icelandic geology in general and the conditions under which each mineral forms.

Kristján Sæmundsson, a geologist with Iceland GeoSurvey (ÍSOR), has worked extensively on geological mapping and geothermal research.

Einar Gunnlaugsson is a geochemist with Reykjavík Energy, working on geothermal research.

Grétar Eiríksson was a nationally recognised photographer of Icelandic nature.
