Abstract

Man's interest in and knowledge of some of the commoner minerals such as quartz, mica and calcite, the native metals and the precious stones, must have begun practically with the beginning of his occupancy of the earth and the command given to him to subdue the earth involved bringing its inorganic matters within the range of his knowledge and control. Thus early were the physical sciences authoritatively introduced into the curriculum of the great school of his life.
