That one has not one picture, but its full of true information. Some examples: - A lot of the book is copy pasted information between entries. Look around, they are out there.

This page glossary will provide a helpful tool, and quick reference to all friends of mineralogy, museum curators, gemologists, and researchers in mineralogy. The paper is glossy and thick. The Internet can also be a useful search tool as it can help find other amateur geologists. There is a lot of it.
