Glossary of Obsolete Mineral Names


English Language: English

Author: Peter Bayliss

Reviews

Nomenclature is fundamental in any science. New terms and names are coined as need arises and discarded when they become obsolete. The mineral kingdom has recently passed 4,000 recognized species but keeping current is easy because Fleischer’s Glossary of Mineral Species, begun in 1971 and now in its 8th edition, has become the standard reference list for mineral names accepted as valid species by the International Mineralogical Association’s Commission on New Minerals and Mineral Names. This companion to Fleischer’s Glossary from the same publisher is a multilingual list of more than 30,000 discarded names, the refuse of several centuries of the scientific study of minerals.
