Study of igneous petrology is a basic necessity to geological sciences. Igneous rocks—intrusive (plutonic) and extrusive (volcanic)—are natural products of crystallization, cooling and solidification of magma originated from the deepest parts of the Earth and represent the original source for sedimentary and metamorphic counter components.The book is divided into four sections, minerals, crystals, rocks and ores.

Section A incorporates nine s, begins with presenting salient features of the earth--its structure and composition. The second Minerals and Mineralogy briefly tells about their diversity and their categorisation and introduces the interesting way they are s: 2.
