Learning Objectives

Goals: basis of mineralogy and petrography for a correct identification of minerals and rocks; particular attention will be addressed to the most used ornamental stones. The lectures will be integrated with exercises with macroscopic stone samples.

Program

Minerals, crystals and rocks. Morphology and crystal symmetry. Polymorphism and isomorphism. Physical features of minerals. Systematic mineralogy. The classification of silicates. Concepts of minerogenesis. Definition of rock: structural and textural characteristics. Magmatic rocks: intrusive and effusive processes. Classification methods and nomenclature of magmatic rocks. Sedimentary rocks: formation processes, structures and textures.Classification of silicoclastic, carbonatic and evaporitic rocks. Metamorphic processes: contact and regional. Structure, textures and nomenclature of the main metamorphic rocks. Ornamental stones largely used in the historical times.
Practical exercises with stone samples regarding the identification of the main macroscopic features of magmatic, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The student have to demonstrate:

-knowledge of the petrogenetic processes and the classification systems; macroscopic characterization and mineralogical composition of rocks; identification of the main lithotypes of historic and archaeological interest;

- knowledge and understanding of the relationships between macroscopic textures and mineralogical composition with the petrogenetic processes;

- ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity for the identification of the origin of the lithotypes for a correct action of restoration;

-the learning skills allowing to continue to study in an independent way.
