About the Author

Abraham Gottlob Werner (1749-1817), was an eminent mineralogist and geologist. In his 1774 book On the External Characteristics of Minerals he put forward a system for the classification of colour in order to describe and classify all characteristics of fossils. Werner's system was known to natural philosophers - other than geologists - and was considered a valuable aid for the organisation of colour into the nineteenth century.
