Synopsis

Minerals of Britain and Ireland is a completely comprehensive treatment of the minerals found in Britain, Ireland and the surrounding islands. Beautifully illustrated throughout with over 550 colour and black & white images, the book provides exhaustive coverage of the remarkably wide range of minerals found in this part of the world. By far the longest part of the book is the alphabetical listing of all the minerals described from Britain and Ireland. This includes species, varieties, synonyms, discredited minerals and fraudulent descriptions. The status of each mineral is clearly represented by distinctive formatting. All type localities are also described. The treatment is enriched with biographical information on all those individuals who have had minerals named after them; it describes all temajor mineral collections in national and local museums and university deprtments;and it summarizes the geological conditions in the major orefields that produced so many of the minerals.
