Crystal morphology course for mineral collectors, organised by the Mineralogical Society of Antwerp.
The course will consist of a series of 6 lectures on crystal structure and morphology, on symmetry elements, crystal classes and systems, indices, stereographic projections etc. But foremost it is a practice-oriented course without difficult mathematics. Using crystal models each participant learns how to determine the existing symmetry elements, to determine the crystal system and where possible the crystal class. Furthermore, each student learns to use KrystalShaper, a computer program for drawing crystals. The language is Dutch.
