Optical Crystallography Melinda Darby Dyar, Mickey E. Gunter & Dennis Tasa Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

In this chapter we relate the interaction of light with minerals to the study of mineral crystallography. With the fundamentals of optics (covered in Chapter 16) we can now understand the use of the Polarizing Light Microscope for mineral identification.
Topics covered in Chapter 17 include:
The Polarizing Light Microscope (PLM) Sample Types and Preparations Birefringence, Retardation, and Orientation of N and n Accessory Plates Interference Figures (isogyres) The Indicatrix Revisited Dispersion Indicatrix on "Stage" Interference Figures in Practice Orientational Dependence of Images Other Optical Phenomena
