Try these--&nbsp; If they don't work let me know I'll try to send as direct
<br>Encyclopedea Britannica has the best texts of researching minerals
and how they interrelate.
<br>Olivine is one of the magnesium silicates I say one becasue there are
several different chemical formulas. Olivine (Mg,Fe Si04)(at normal presure)
is a mixture of two minrerals&nbsp; forrsterite and fayalite.&nbsp; When
hydrated it is serpentine. see also the pyroxenes: enstatie, ferrosilate,
bronzite, hyperstene

<blockquote TYPE=CITE>Dear Greg and List;
<br>For great pictures, and excellent reading, I recomend the Audobon Guide
To Rocks and Minerals, $19 US.&nbsp; It has the most complete work in a
form that common rock hounds and geologists can both understand.
<br>Most Libraries should have it, and for a look try any good book store.
<br>Best Reading,
