This is one of our highly recommended books. Field Geology Illustrated, 2nd Edition is a reliable, in depth field reference for professional geologists, serious amateur geologists, and other environmental scientists. This entirely new second edition represents the first detailed, comprehensive book on field geology in 20 years. Richly illustrated with 688 high-quality photographs and 300 interpretative sketches, this 704-page book is printed on glossy paper to show important strucutural and textural features. Contents include marine geological surveys, plutonic rocks, volcanic rocks, continental deposits, marine deposits, deformed rocks (joints, faults, folds, cleavage) weathering processes and soils, ground water, mineral deposits, and the public land survey system. The iterpretative sketches pull out the detail which you'd normally miss in the photos.

Field Geology Illustrated, 2n Edition was designed to serve as a field reference to aid in recognizing, interpreting, and describing geologic features at the outcrop. Emphasis is on the study of mesocopic features that can be viewed at outcrop scale rather than large structures or landscapes. This book is not an exhaustive or comprehensive treatise on the subject of field geology, but instead cover the information necessary to understand and describe most outcrops...

Field Geology Illustrated should be useful as a complementary text for any field-related geoscience course such as physical geology, field geology, petrology, and structural geology. The detailed descriptions, illustrations and photographs of geologic features in their field setting will be particularly useful (AG: on a field trip, vacation, or) where field trips are not feasible.

This book is also intended for anyone who needs a good basic review of field geology including graduate students preparing for field mapping, professional geologists who wish to bring their skill up to date quickly and easily and even serious amateur geologists (AG: We believe this is useful to anyone interested in geology in the field!)Self study will be particularly rewarding because an interpretative sketch and detailed description is included with each photograph.

  • What's So Great About Granite?

    From the WHAT'S SO COOL ABOUT GEOLOGY Series, the first book in the series, comes What's So Great About Granite?. Not just a dry text book but lively prose filled with vibrant full color photographs and informative figures. Granite here is the more general term for granitic rock. Specifically granite is a type of granitic rock with a high quartz content and is often a lighter rock. We live below Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the continental US. Mt Whitney is a granite mountain. A few miles to the east lie the Alabama Hills. You know them, they're those big round boulders you see in the westerns with Roy Rogers, the Lone Ranger, and Hopalong Cassidy riding through them. Perhaps you saw them blown up at the beginning of the movie Iron Man. Or Russel Crowe riding through them in Gladiator? Transformers? Or the cult classic Tremors? Well, they're Monzogranite. Between the peak of Mt. Whitney and the Alabama Hills lie several other types of granitic rock: diorite, quartz diorite, granodiorite. There's lots of granodiorite in the Sierra, like Yosemite, but it's always called "granite". A granitic rock tells the story of it's creation if you look hard enough.

    And what about your granite counter top? Or more correctly what about the granitic rock making up your counter tops? What kind of granitic rock is it? Light colored, big crystals? Perhaps a granite. Lots of small crystals with a salt an pepper look? Probably a granodiorite? Pretty swirling colors? Well, the counter top dealer called it granite but it's probably gneiss and not even a granitic rock. It's a metamorpic rock that came from granitic rock and is once again becoming a granitic rock. But how will you know if you don't know "granite"?

    So now uncover some of the mysteries of this wildly diverse and widely familiar rock. This book is a must have in your library if you're even mildly interested in the rock which is the backbone of our planet! Jennifer H. Carey with photographs by Marli Bryant Miller. 104 pgs, 8 3/8 x 9, paperback.

  • BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifier (Importer's 2nd)

    Amateur Geologist is the sole licensed importer of the BelOMO loupes for North America.

    These BelOMO 10x Triplet Loupe Magnifiers have a minor blemish and I won't sell them as new. They're just as good as new, there's never a problem with the lens and you save 20% more off our internet price.

    About the seconds:
    • Every now and again we receive a loupe that has a screw stripped. Or maybe I do it when I treat the loupe to prevent the screws from loosening. If it's on the pivot post then I just bag it up with a replacement screw and let you replace it.
    • Sometimes it's just a loupe that's ''escaped'' its box and got a little dusty on the desk. (I wipe them off but I don't claim that they're new since they were exposed to the Owens Lake dust.)
    • Maybe the lanyard got dirty with Owens Lake dust. (The Owens Lake dust is bad. Thanks LA). Just wash it or cut it off.
    • Maybe I grabbed one to quickly examine something now I've "used" it.
    • I might scuff a screw when I'm treating the screw. 
    • I might have had too much coffee (never) and the screwdriver slipped and scratched the plate.
    • Sometimes the BelOMO factory may install one of the cover plates upside-down.
    If a screw is stripped then you'll receive a replacement screw. Never have I had the threads in the shaft stripped but if it is I'll send you a replacement shaft.

    Anyway, the optics of the loupe are always "as new" from the factory. The loupe case just has a minor blemish and I wont to sell it as new.

    Limit one per customer.

    You MUST enter the coupon code "2nd" when you add the loupe to your shopping cart to get the discount.

  • Advanced Prospecting and Detecting for Hardrock Gold

    The relationship of regional geology to the types of placer deposits (with emphasis on epithermal deposits forming eluvial placers and how to metal detect them.)

    Meteorites - Mining Districts - Gossans - Laterities

    Jim Straight has been involved in some form of prospecting for over half a century.

    Jim found his first detected nugget on a hardrock mine dump near Tonopah, Nevada. For the last fifteen years he has metal detected both desert dryplacer areas and hardrock gold mines.
    He is a 1954 graduate of the Mackay School of Mines, University of Nevada. Jim has a B.S. degree in Geological Engineering and has completed post graduate classes in Mining.

    "ADVANCED Prospecting & Detecting for Hardrock Gold" has been written especially for the serious student who is self-committed and willing to study and become more knowledgeable. This booklet is not a simple course in "Introduction to Nuggetshooting 101." Instead, it is meant to be "Advanced Nuggetshooting 421" and is intended to be semi-technical. It will lead the serious detectorist, who is determined to find gold nuggets, along a learning path by introducing little-known technical aspects and correct terminology.

    Explanations, references, illustrations, charts, tables, and a glossary round out the basic information. Emphasis is placed on epithermal deposits that have formed eluvial placers, "how to" detect them for gold nuggets, and "how to" understand the relationship of regional geology to the types of placer deposits.
