  <mods:abstract>Natural history lecture notes by Edward Hitchcock focused primarily on crystals and the classification of minerals. Hitchcock introduces the subject of mineralogy in general, then discusses the forms of crystals, as well as the ways crystals are described. Hitchcock additionally distinguishes between the physical and chemical characteristics of minerals, listing twenty-five physical characteristics and two chemical characteristics by which they are classified. He lists the different classifications of minerals, with descriptions and examples. The lives of mineralogists Abraham Gottlob Werner and Abbe Hauy are discussed in detail.</mods:abstract>
