Book News
The first edition (1974) was cited in Sheehy. An essential reference on every accepted mineral species, revised and updated to reflect new information in the science of mineralogy. This edition contains: some 3,200 alphabetical entries, 1,000 of which are entirely new; 338 photos, most in color, mostly of large specimens; 45 new crystal drawings of rare species; and complete coverage of silicates. All entries include the mineral's formula, its crystal system, locality, and physical property data. Lovingly done, and the color photography is exemplary. Too bad that the paper's acidic.
