Excerpt from Familiar Lessons on Mineralogy and Geology: Explaining the Easiest Methods of Discriminating Metals, Earths, and Rocks to Which Has Been Added a Practical Description of the Use of the Lapidarys Apparatus The Author, fully aware of the difficulties the beginner has to encounter in reading elementary works on Mineralogy, has carefully avoided tedious details and technical phraseology, studiously aiming at simplicity of description, and concise explanation, that the learner may be led straight forward to the objects, and enabled to discriminate one Mineral from another, the substances that compose the mountains, and the ground on which he treads. Mineralogy may be contemplated in two points of view. It may be considered as closely connected with the more common affairs of life, and consequently inviting us to pursue it from its utility, or by affording to us continual examples of regularity, the undeviating order of nature, it may, like Astronomy, accustom the student to sublime speculations, and become the means of enlarging and dignifying the faculties of his understanding.
