1. “Experimental Techniques in Mineral and Rock Physics: The Schreiber Volume (Pageoph Topical Volumes)” by Robert C Liebermann and Carl H Sondergeld

“Experimental Techniques in Mineral and Rock Physics: The Schreiber Volume (Pageoph Topical Volumes)” Book Review: This book gives us knowledge about the sonic velocity in sediments and rock lithology. It is key to interpreting data from seismic sections or from acoustic logs of sedimentary sequences. It gives correlation between porosity or density. They are essential for calculating impedance models for synthetic seismic sections. This book gives information about understanding of elastic rock properties in siliciclastic or shaly sediments. It is investigated that the variations of velocity for siliciclastic rocks (VERNIK and NUR, 1992). These concepts are applicable for pure carbonates. Carbon­ ates do not have large compositional variations. Pure carbonates are characterized by the lack of any clay or siliciclastic content.

2. “Amphiboles: Petrology and Experimental Phase Relations: 9B (Reviews in Mineralogy)” by David R Veblen

“Amphiboles: Petrology and Experimental Phase Relations: 9B (Reviews in Mineralogy)” Book Review: This book is volume 9B which explores the social life and personality of amphiboles. A mineralogical shark in a sea of unsuspecting elements. It permits amphiboles to occur in a very wide variety of rock types. large range of pressure and temperature conditions, and in association with an impressive number of other minerals. This book helps us understand amphibole phase relations. It also provides the amphibole student and researcher with an up-to-date summary of the most important aspects of amphibole petrology. This amphibole petrology was started during 1981. Only one chapter was in manuscript form at the time of the short course, and publication was delayed by one year.

3. “Petrogenesis and Experimental Petrology of Granitic Rocks (Minerals, Rocks and Mountains)” by Wilhelm Johannes and Francois Holtz

“Petrogenesis and Experimental Petrology of Granitic Rocks (Minerals, Rocks and Mountains)” Book Review: This book emphasizes the experimental aspects. This gives an up-to-date summary and discusses the field of experimentally based granite petrology. This book deals with the petrogenesis of granitic rocks. It gives a summary and interpretation of experimental results obtained in synthetic and natural rock systems.This book provides the significance of water for the formation, intrusion and crystallization of granitic magmas. It explains the crystallization of granitic magma which is an important part of the book. This book helps us understand evolution of granites, which is the most important type of rock of the continental crust.

4. “Deep Earth: Physics and Chemistry of the Lower Mantle and Core (Geophysical Monograph Series)” by Hidenori Terasaki and Rebecca A Fischer

“Deep Earth: Physics and Chemistry of the Lower Mantle and Core (Geophysical Monograph Series)” Book Review: This book highlights the latest views of the deep Earth from theoretical, experimental, and observational approaches. It offers insight into future research directions on the deep Earth. This book highlights where we can perform measurements at the conditions of the center part of the Earth using state-of-the-art techniques. This book enables us to compare directly with results of precise geophysical and geochemical observations. This book also highlights the recent significant advancements in our understanding of the deep Earth that have occurred. It also deals with the topic Thermal structure of the lower mantle and core. It deals with Structure, anisotropy, and plasticity of deep Earth materials. It also talks about Physical properties of the deep interior and chemistry and phase relations in the lower mantle and core. This book is necessary for valuable resources for researchers and students who study the Earth’s interior. The topics in this book are multidisciplinary. So it will be very useful for students from a wide variety of fields in the Earth Sciences.

5. “Phosphate and Mineral Homeostasis (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” by Shaul G Massry and Michel Olmer

“Phosphate and Mineral Homeostasis (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology)” Book Review: This book deals with the topic Seventh International Workshop on Phosphate and other Minerals which was held in Marseille, France during September 1-4, 1985. This workshop was hosted by Professor Michel Olmer, the Chief of the Division of Nephrology. It was attended by 250 scientists from 17 countries including Algeria, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Democratic Republic of C’.germany, Egypt, England, France, Israel, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the United States of America. 28 presenters were invited by scientists. 40 oral and 75 poster presentations selected from over 200 abstracts submitted to the Organizing Committee. This meeting gave a lot of opportunities for interested scientists from interrelated disciplines. The topics included were nephrology, endocrinology, physiology, biochemistry and nutrition. They even discussed advances in the field of phosphate and mineral metabolism.

6. “Genesis of Diamonds and Associated Phases (Springer Mineralogy)” by Yuriy A Litvin

“Genesis of Diamonds and Associated Phases (Springer Mineralogy)” Book Review: This book is presenting recent advances in our understanding of the genesis of diamonds and the associated phases. It is divided into three main parts. The introductory part to the analysis of diamond inclusions to infer the formation processes. The second part of the book presents high-pressure experimental studies. This book provides experimental syngenesis phase diagrams that reveal the physicochemical mechanisms of diamond. It explains the genetic classification of diamond-hosted minerals. This book involves the driving forces behind the fractional evolution of the mantle magmas and diamond-parental melts. The book offers researchers essential new insights into the ways diamonds. It also provides the topics associated with minerals and rocks that are naturally created.
