A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Minerals Collection - THE STUDY OF MINERALS is called mineralogy and is especially concerned with the physical qualities, chemical composition, and the form and structure of mineral crystals. In a broader sense it also considers the origin and occurrence of these minerals in the earth’s crust, the distribution thereof and their utilization. Mineralogy is also associated with chemistry, physics, mathematics, and especially geology in that geology is concerned primarily with the solid outer part of the earth (the lithosphere) which includes minerals to depths of less than 10 miles. Geology also is concerned with the study of the processes by which the features of the earth have been formed, including how the rocks, minerals, and the various strata have been deposited. A fascinating aspect of geology is that the remains of plants and animals (fossils) in the rocks and sediment form a history of the events that have occurred in the earth’s crust. In the later half of the 18th century, a principle was discovered by Jean Louis Giraud-Soulavie in France, and also independently by William Smith in England, that the dominant pattern of life differs from formation to formation but that the succession of major life patterns from older to younger is the same all over. This revelation now seems rather obvious, but it has made possible the correlation of geological events in widely separated parts of the earth and the subdivision of geological history into eras, periods, and epochs giving a perspective of the succession of animals and plant forms and especially the enormous spans of time over which changes have taken place. This understanding of the millions, and even billions of years, over which these changes have taken place has broadened man's comphrehension of life on this planet. This concept has been subsequently substantiated using carbon dating techniques. Beyond the intricacies of these various aspects, the minerals that are studied normally provide us with very visually attractive objects, especially the crystalline forms, which is part of the attraction found at gem and mineral shows. Geology and mineralogy are fascinating fields of study and are increasingly important as the inhabitants of Earth search for and utilize the finite natural resources these minerals represent.
