Open Educational Resources

Geology.com. News and information about geology.

Go to Articles on top bar, to get a wide range of descriptive articles with illustrations, e.g. minerals, rocks, fossils, and much more.

I have not been able to find out who writes these articles.  However, they appear to have been written by geologists who know the subject.  I have not found any errors.  References to the primary literature are listed at the end of some articles, and sources of illustrations are usually given. 

An easy source of information, e.g. if you want to know the composition or appearance of a mineral or rock, and don’t have a suitable textbook handy.  Good illustrations and diagrams.
