The Red Island
Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world.

Incredible riches of minerals and gemstones are distributed over the entire island. Madagascar developed out of active tectonic history with countless episodes of mineralization.

In this monograph Federico Pezzotta, a Madagascar specialist and curator of the Natural History museum of Milan, Italy, reports on the origins, distribution and production of the minerals and gemstones of Madagascar. He guides the reader through Madagacar's remote localities and sources of some of the best specimens in the world for numerous mineral species.
