The Mineral Book is the newest in the best-selling Wonders of Creation series and answers important questions in an exciting way!
Minerals are a gift of God’s grace. Every day we touch them, seeing the diamond in an engagement ring or a copper chain with a cross on it. Minerals are touched on in video games like Minecraft® and Mineral Valley™, making them more a part of our daily experience.
Salt, one vital mineral, helps maintain the fluid in our blood cells and is used to transmit information in our nerves and muscles. Also, Jesus told his followers that we are the salt of the earth (Matthew 5:13), something thus needed for health and flavor. Here is a God-honoring book that reveals the first mention of minerals in the Bible, symbolic usages, their current values in culture and society, and their mention in heaven.
This high-quality book has been developed for multi-level teaching, with special color-coding on three skill levels. This educational resource is filled with full-color pictures and illustrations, and can be used in the classroom, for independent study, or homeschool settings.
Created to make mineralogy accessible to beginners, students, and hobbyists. It will help the reader learn about the order and beauty of minerals shaped by the Creator and find out the properties, location and various uses of minerals along with fun facts. Includes a 24-inch, full-color pull-out poster!
